Constitutional Court dismisses Čentéš complaint

THE CONSTITUTIONAL Court (CC) did not accept a complaint submitted by elected but un-appointed prosecutor general Jozef Čentéš. He submitted the complaint in June 2011, objecting to the inactivity of the president and procrastination in the decision-making process, the SITA newswire reported on December 19.

THE CONSTITUTIONAL Court (CC) did not accept a complaint submitted by elected but un-appointed prosecutor general Jozef Čentéš. He submitted the complaint in June 2011, objecting to the inactivity of the president and procrastination in the decision-making process, the SITA newswire reported on December 19.

The Court cancelled the decision of former president Ivan Gašparovič not to appoint Čentéš on December 4. Gašparovič’s decision, dated from Decemebr 28, 2012, was thus overturned, and the CC also found that by not appointing Čentéš, his fundamental human rights were violated. The First panel of the CC (led by justice Ladislav Orosz) also allocated a financial compensation of €60,000 to Čentéš.

CC’s panel composed of Lajos Mészáros, Sergej Kohut and Rudolf Tkáčik dealing with procrastination complaint has not published the reasoning of its decision thus it is not clear whether presidents have in general right to delay their duties, the Sme daily wrote.

The decision likely finishes the case of not appointing Čentéš to the prosecutor general post, according to SITA.
