Borec initiates move against three Supreme Court judges

Justice Minister Tomáš Borec has initiated disciplinary proceedings against three judges of the Supreme Court whose inactivity in the spring resulted in double murderer Štefan Szabó, who had been previously sentenced to life, being released from prison, ministry spokeswoman Alexandra Donevová told the TASR newswire on November 11. Szabó was sentenced by the Specialised Criminal Court in Pezinok in October 2013 for the murder of two men. The verdict did not enter into force, however, as Szabó appealed to the Supreme Court. After he was released in the spring he disappeared and the police are now unable to find him. The Supreme Court in the meantime confirmed the original verdict of the Specialised Court, and ordered that Szabó should also pay compensation to the widow of one of his victims amounting to more than €22,000.
