On Thursday the Slovak Constitutional Court ruled that the Regional Court in Bratislava and the Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic had not decided fairly in the case of the Czech political leader and tycoon, Andrej Babiš. For a few years now, Babiš has been in conflict with the Nation's Memory Institute. The institute, which manages and interprets the archives from the communist era and before, is objecting to an earlier court ruling that Babiš did not collaborate with the communist secret police, the StB. Babiš has repeatedly denied accusations that he collaborated with the StB in spite of archive material that suggests he did. The case will now return to the Regional Court in Bratislava for further proceedings.
