Fired general returns to Brussels

The Pravda daily reported that General Marián Mikluš, who was prosecuted in the Katrim Stella case, has been accepted back into the cabinet by Defence Minister František Kašický and will represent Slovakia in Brussels for at least three years, beginning in August.

Mikluš will be deputy advisor for armament in the European Defence Agency. Mikluš's promotion is another step forward for Kašický in the Katrim Stella case.

Last autumn, Mikluš paid Katrim Stella a Sk200 million claim, litigated by Dzurinda's government. Mikluš was the chief of the Slovak Army's general staff during Mečiar's second term of government. He signed off on the delivery of airplanes from Russia, thus confirming commissions for Katrim Stella amounting to millions of crowns.

Since being established two and a half years ago, the Second Pillar has attracted almost 1.6 million people, which represents the majority of working Slovaks.
