The Czech Republic’s highest court, the Constitutional Court, is operating with its full complement of 15 judges after President Miloš Zeman made two new appointments on Monday. The head of state appointed Jan Musil and Jiří Zemánek to the vacant posts. Musil is regarded as an expert on criminal law and Zemánek on European law and national compliance of national legislation with EU rules. Three new vacancies on the court will occur in May, June and September this year when the terms of existing judges expire.
