Reader feedback: Nasty smell of Spišiak dismissal

Re: "Police gets three new heads", Vol 12 No 31, August 14-20

As far as I'm concerned, these changes are not 'a breath of fresh air' but a nasty smell. Why, with Spišiak generally accepted to have done a good job against organised crime, is the new government, particularly some of its more senior and more experienced members, so keen to get rid of him?
