Constitutional Court now complete after appointment of Pavel Šámal
Pavel Šámal has been appointed a justice of the Czech Constitutional Court by President Miloš Zeman in a ceremony at Prague Castle. The judge, who previously headed the Supreme Court, was approved by the Senate in a vote at the end of last month. His appointment means that the Constitutional Court is now complete after over a year.
The president said on Thursday that he believed Justice Šámal’s appointment would help make the country’s highest court more dynamic.
