Special attorney's office to remain

REGARDLESS of whether the Special Court for handling organized crime cases is scrapped or downsized, as the Justice Ministry intends, 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 paper, the Special Attorney's Office achieved remarkable results in its fight against corruption and has therefore justified its existence, the Sme daily wrote.

Trnka added that he had certain objections to the work of the Special Attorney's Office, but did not give details. 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 in 2005 by the previous government to handle top corruption and mafia cases. The new justice minister, Štefan Harabin, has said that he wants to cancel the Special Court or at least change its status to that of a regular district court.
