A parliamentary committee will begin discussion September 4 on whether to remove the parliamentary immunity from prosecution of Peter Kresánek, mayor of Bratislava from 1994 to 1998, to allow charges to be laid for abuse of power as a public official, according to the TASR state news agency.
Kresánek is currently a member of Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda’s ruling Slovak Democratic Coalition (SDK).
