Trnka quarrels with Harabin

Prosecutor Generan Dobroslav Trnka says the justice minister unlawfully recalled Peter Paluda, Slovakia's representative in Eurojust, the EU organization that co-ordinates law enforcement co-operation among member states.

Trnka made the claims against Justice Minister Štefan Harabin in a Sme daily article on July 10.

The prosecutor general said he wants to use legal tools in this matter, but he did not specify what he might do. Theoretically, Trnka could turn to the Constitutional Court.

A recent amendment to the law enabled the Justice Ministry to recall the Eurojust head, if the issue is discussed with the prosecutor general.

Following his decision to remove Paluda from his post, Harabin wrote a letter to Trnka, in which he informed him that the letter was considered to be a written discussion, Sme reported.
