Information of JUDr K. Javorcikova to all judges

Dear colleagues,

On 26 May 2010 SITA press agency published this agency report:

SME: Harabin: Diplomats buy the judges through small gifts

Bratislava. Stefan Harabin, President of the Supreme Court has suspicion- it is said, that the western ambassadors corrupt dissatisfied judges. Diplomats visited disciplinary procedures with these judges. “I do not meet foreign ambassadors before Christmas and I do not accept their small gifts. This also should be mentioned in relation to those judges, if this could be corruption, political or other, “ Harabin said. He repeated that diplomats interfered internal affairs in Slovakia. “Definitely no Slovak ambassador would visit any disciplinary procedure with a judge in Austria, who released Fritzl free from custody.“
