According to the Bailiffs Act, from the moment the Minister of Justice receives information about the suspect from the person conducting the proceedings, the decision on initiating disciplinary proceedings and bringing the bailiff to disciplinary responsibility is postponed until the final decision of the person conducting the proceedings in the criminal proceedings enters into force.
An appeal against a decision shall not have suspensory effect.
