Kanis sells suspect property

Pavol Kanis, the former Defence Minister, is selling his luxury house, the main reason why he was forced to step down from his post in December 2000.

While Defence Minister, Kanis earned $800 per month. He withdrew from the post after he failed to explain how he managed to obtain extra funds for the house construction, saying only that he had raised them through two bank loans and winnings amassed through gambling.

Now a Member of Parliament for the socialist ruling coalition Democratic Left Party (SDĽ), Kanis said that he wanted to leave politics to work as a lawyer, as legal sector salaries were higher than those of politicians.
