The disciplinary senate decided that ex-state secretary Monika Jankovská, who is now working at the Bratislava Regional Court, cannot perform in her position as a judge.
The information has been confirmed by Veronika Müller, spokesperson of the Judicial Council’s Office, to the Sme daily.
The senate issued its decision upon a motion submitted by Justice Minister Gábor Gál (Most-Híd). He did so following recent reports on the conversation from the Threema app, which suggests that Jankovská might have tried to arrange things in favour of mobster Marian Kočner. She has refuted such claims.
The decision will be valid until the disciplinary senate issues a verdict concerning the motion.
