Sme: Bar Association to ask Macejka about Čentéš letter

Lawyer Ľubomír Macejka, the husband of Constitutional Court chairperson Ivetta Macejková, will have to explain to the Slovak Bar Association (SAK) why he sent an insult-filled letter to general-prosecutor-elect Jozef Čentéš in March. The letter was made public this week; according to SAK statutes, an advocate should not vilify other members of the legal profession.

Lawyer Ľubomír Macejka, the husband of Constitutional Court chairperson Ivetta Macejková, will have to explain to the Slovak Bar Association (SAK) why he sent an insult-filled letter to general-prosecutor-elect Jozef Čentéš in March. The letter was made public this week; according to SAK statutes, an advocate should not vilify other members of the legal profession.

"The aim of the inquiry is to find whether the actions of the colleague show signs of [behaviour that would justify a] disciplinary proceeding," chairman of the association’s revision commission Richard Karkó said, as quoted by the Sme daily.

President Ivan Gašparovič meanwhile announced that he would not call Macejková to account for her husband’s actions. The president’s spokesman, Marek Trubač, said that the head of state does not intend to “nourish this topic with his reactions”.

Čentéš and Gašparovič are parties to a case before the Constitutional Court concerning the latter’s refusal to appoint the former. Čentéš earlier lodged an objection to Macejková’s involvement in the case due to her reportedly friendly relationship with Gašparovič. Following his objection, Macejka wrote a letter to Čentéš full of vulgarisms, and questioning his mental capacity. Under judicial rules, Macejková should not have disclosed the details of Čentéš’ case file, including his objection to Macejková herself, to her husband.
