Special Prosecutor Dušan Kováčik has asked the Judges’ Council of the Supreme Court to consider a disciplinary proceeding against judge Štefan Harabin (former justice minister and Supreme Court, Judicial Council chair).

The motion is to be discussed on September 11, Supreme Court spokesperson Alexandra Važanová said, as quoted by the Sme daily.

The reasons for this steps are, according to Kováčik, Harabin’s statements in the conspiracy broadcaster Slobodný Vysielač about the scandal surrounding conspirator Tibor Rostas and the search police made at his home by the end of February. This police operation was related to the criminal prosecution for the news story “The Wedge of Jews between Slavs” that included anti-Jewish quotations of several historical personages, Sme wrote on August 21.
