The government's Security Council approved the establishment of an expert working group for restoring confidence in the rule of law, PM Eduard Heger announced in response to "extremely worrying" developments in law enforcement authorities.
"This is not just a government struggle, this is our common struggle," Heger told the media.
Finance Minister Igor Matovič added: "We have bugs in the system that we need to identify quickly."
The working group will start meeting continuously from Monday, September 20. It will prepare proposals for changes for the government and parliament to improve the functioning of the security forces. It will include representatives of courts, prosecutors, ministries and other institutions under the statute of the Security Council.
Coalition Sme Rodina will, however, not take part in it.
