Parliament Passes Act on Lawyer Fees in Re-Vote

Ljubljana, 17 June - Parliament passed on Tuesday again the vetoed act on attorney fees, which gives the right to set the fees to parliament. While the government says the act aims at rewarding attorneys in a way that would promote settling matters as quickly as possible, the opposition believes the law would make attorney services dearer.
