Constitutional Court invalidates president's decision

The Constitutional Court has invalidated the dismissal of Iva Brozova as head of the Supreme Court by President Vaclav Klaus in February of this year. The Court ruled that the dismissal was in violation of the Constitution and was not properly justified. President Klaus dismissed Ms Brozova at the request of then- justice minister Pavel Nemec who said the Supreme Court needed stronger and more authoritative leadership. President Klaus who was not present at the hearing, said the court's ruling was wrong and set a dangerous precedent.
