All of them met the necessary conditions to become a judge, said Judicial Council President Jana Bajánková after the October 19 closed session. The very first candidates were checked already in September. At the time, only 17 of 19 candidates passed. While one candidate did not fulfil the conditions required, in the second case the council stopped the discussion and asked the NBÚ for additional information. The latter candidate was approved at the October session, Bajánková added, as reported by the TASR newswire.
