The money from the EU package allocated to fight the coronavirus should also be used to establish new courts and offices, according to Justice Minister Mária Kolíková (Za Ľudí).
“The Strengthening of Rule of Law Capacities” project aims to use the funds to pay for some reform steps aiming to clean up the judiciary, the TASR newswire reported.
This includes the establishment of the Supreme Administration Court, city courts in Bratislava and Košice, and the offices to administer the seized property or property disclosures.
The Supreme Administration Court should deal with the administrative legal proceedings and should be responsible for disciplinary proceedings against judges and prosecutors. It should be situated in Bratislava and should start working next year.
