Killer-freeing judge suspended

Justice Minister Ján Čarnogurský has suspended from duty a judge whose gross clerical error led in early September to the freeing of seven accused killers in east Slovakia’s Košice.

The judge, Dušan Kán, is also under investigation by police for his failure to request an extension of pre-trial custody for the seven men, who are believed to be part of a gang under murdered crime boss Karol Kolárik.
