Social security director toppled

The director of state social security provider Sociálna poisťovňa (SP), Miroslav Knitl, has been sacked by its board of directors on the request of the Minister of Labour, Social Affairs, and the Family, Ľudovít Kaník.

"The breaking of the law was a sufficient reason for his removal," explained Kaník. He added that the company needed "able people, who knew how to manage".

Knitl may have broken the law during the tender process for a new computer system. Knitl signed a contract with computer company CSC without the approval of the board of directors. He denies any wrongdoing.
