Čentéš will not submit complaint against Macejková

Jozef Čentéš will not submit a criminal complaint against Constitutional Court President Ivetta Macejková for allegedly manipulating his file at the court. According to him, it would not help to resolve the case, the Pravda daily reported on May 14.

Jozef Čentéš will not submit a criminal complaint against Constitutional Court President Ivetta Macejková for allegedly manipulating his file at the court. According to him, it would not help to resolve the case, the Pravda daily reported on May 14.

“After evaluating all connections we decided that we will not use the means of criminal law to solve the individual constitutional dispute,” Čentéš told Pravda. “My aim is a fair and quick resolution of this dispute where it should be dealt with – at the Constitutional Court, [and] possibly at the European Court for Human Rights.”

Čentéš considered submitting a criminal complaint after the Sme daily published a leaked e-mail in which Justice Peter Brňák complains over the decision of Macejková to assign him to handle Čentéš’ objection to the refusal of President Ivan Gašparovič to appoint him as general prosecutor, which Čentéš submitted to the court at the beginning of January. Brňák, together with his colleague Milan Ľalík, were the only judges to be legally excluded from the decision-making in the matter.

An amendment to the law on the operation of the Constitutional Court, which was passed in a fast-tracked parliamentary proceeding on April 30, could allow Brňák to decide in the case. The amendment has yet to be signed into law by the president.

While the opposition and several legal experts faulted Macejková for giving the Čentéš case to a legally excluded judge, Gašparovič said on May 14 that he sees no reason to discuss the issue or recalling her, Sme wrote.
