Defense Minister sacks VOP Nováky general director

Defense Minister František Kašický dismissed Ján Lasab, the general director and chairman of the Board of Directors of the Vojenský Opravárenský Podnik (VOP) Nováky military maintenance company, on July 11, appointing Peter Trgiňa in his place, Defense Ministry spokesperson Vladimír Gemela told the SITA newswire.

Until then, Trgiňa had worked for neither VOP nor the Defense Ministry, but was granted the proper security clearance for the job.

The dismissal comes five days after police charged several VOP employees, including some managers and a security technician, with an offense punishable by four to ten years in prison. Lasab is allegedly one of those charged.

Lasab was appointed head of VOP in March after an explosion at the company claimed eight lives.
