National Defense Academy commander sacked

Defense Minister František Kašický dismissed Brig. Gen. Mikuláš Regula from his post of commander of the National Defense Academy on August 9, on the grounds that Regula unlawfully used the title associated with a master's degree.

At a press conference that day, Kašický said a ministerial inspection turned up several documents on which Regula had used the title of 'master', but his personal file contained no documents that would authorize him to make that claim. Therefore, the inspection authority asked Regula to submit documents that prove he has a master's degere. Regula has not yet done so.

The Education Ministry also told the Defense Ministry that Regula's studies do not entitle him to use this title.

Regula said he was surprised by Minister’s step.
