Harabin wants Prosecutor General to attend government sessions

The Supreme Court’s press department released a statement today saying it saw no reason why the Prosecutor General and the governor of the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) should be prevented from attending government sessions.

In the statement bearing the name of Supreme Court chairman, Stefan Harabin, it states:  “In the rules of a sovereign Slovakia, this is a customary right of authorities … and their presence at sessions of the highest executive power is irreplaceable for fulfilling the constitutional and legal power of the government”. His comments come in connection with the proposed amendments to the Competences Act, which would regulate access of certain state institutions to government sessions.

“It is their very absence that is in opposition to the basic principles of transparency, which is so talked about today” added Harabin.
