Proceedings Regarding the Dismissal of the President of a Regional Audit Chamber
The purpose of this article is to analyze the appeal procedures of the president of the regional audit chamber (president of RIO) in the context of his organization position and functions. Due to the wording of the provisions of the act on regional audit chambers (act), two modes of dismissal of the president of RIO can be distinguished. The first of these can be described as an individual procedure, as the appeal concerns only and directly the person holding the position of president of RIO. The person concerned may appeal against the decision of the Prime Minister to appeal to the administrative court within 14 days of its delivery. The second mode can be described as group mode because it occurs as a result of the dissolution of the RIO college. The difference between the individual and group mode of dismissal of the president of RIO is the inability to appeal in any way the decision of the prime minister in the event of dissolution of the RIO college, which also implies the dismissal of the RIO president and his deputy. This means that the decision to dissolve the college of the regional accounting office de lege lata is not subject to any judicial review. Due to the important supervisory instruments at RIO’s disposal in relation to local government units (j.s.t.) de lege ferenda, it should be introduced into the law that the administrative court may review the legality of the dissolution of the RIO college. In addition, it should also be noted that the possibility for the president of RIO to appeal against the decision of the Prime Minister to court is another argument in favor of the necessity to operate in a democratic state fully independent courts and independent judges.
