1Unless otherwise provided by law, the seconded magistrates, who have been previously acting as magistrates, shall continue to receive the salary in accordance with the career and seniority criteria for the previously held functions.
2Unless otherwise provided for by law, with regard to the seconded magistrates, who have not been previously assuming the function of the magistrate, the rules for determining the salary of a first instance magistrate shall be applied.
3Where for the seconded position a special salary scheme is applicable, the magistrate shall, during the secondment, benefit his salary according to this special scheme. Upon the end of the secondment term, the magistrate shall be paid the position-related salary wherein the magistrate returns, is transferred, appointed or promoted.
4The seconded magistrate shall receive the highest salary between the two salaries. Where a seconded position is not paid from the judicial or prosecutorial budget, the salary foreseen for the seconded positions in other institutions shall be covered by the budget of the institution while the difference to the respective magistrate’s salary shall be borne by the judicial or prosecutorial budget.
