THE POLICEMEN who lost track of alleged bank robber Roman Červenka a month ago have lost their jobs. On February 15, Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák finally signed the order for their dismissal from the police corps, the Pravda daily wrote. Their subordinate was demoted, but remains with the police.

On January 16, two policemen took Červenka to the hospital on suspicion of appendicitis. Červenka, who faces life imprisonment, fled through a narrow window in a washroom in Bratislava's Kramáre hospital after undergoing medical examinations. The policemen did not report the escape of the 26-year old suspect until an hour later, when they failed to find him around the hospital. This seriously complicated the search, the daily wrote.

Červenka allegedly robbed a bank in Bratislava on January 3 and stole almost Sk170,000 (Ř5,000). Police arrested him at his home on January 9. If found guilty, he could face life imprisonment due to the "Three Strikes, You're Out" law.

"The search for Červenka goes on, we do not have any new information," Police Vice President Stanislav Jankovič told the daily.
