Special attorney's office will stay

REGARDLESS of whether the Special Court for handling organized crime cases is scrapped or downsized, as the Justice Ministry plans, the Special Attorney's Office will remain unaffected, according to Attorney General Dobroslav Trnka.

On September 4, Trnka presented his annual report on the state of the Attorney General's Office for 2005. According to the report, the Special Attorney's Office achieved remarkable results in the fight against corruption and has therefore justified its existence, the daily SME wrote.

Although Trnka said he had certain objections to the work of the Special Attorney's Office, he did not specify them. He also refused to say whether he supported the cancellation of the Special Court.

The Special Court and the Special Attorney's Office were established by the previous government to fight top corruption and mafia cases. The new justice minister, Stefan Harabin, has said that he wants to cancel the Special Court or at least change its status to that of a regular district court.
