The Czech Constitutional Court has overturned a four-percent reduction in the salaries of the country’s judges. Announcing its ruling, the court drew attention to a previous verdict which declared that the salaries of judges had to be stable and could not be cut. The pay cut was for 2010 only and was part of austerity measures imposed by the previous government. The recently installed new cabinet had been planning to reduce judges’ salaries even further.
