p>THE SPECIALISED Crime Court in Pezinok has reopened the main hearing into an embezzlement case involving Devín Banka.

The hearing was originally scheduled to start on June 16 but was adjourned due to a death in the family of one of the court’s senate members.

The court last dealt with the case in September 2007 but the hearing was adjourned after one of the accused was hospitalised.

The prosecution has accused the former bankruptcy administrator of Devín Banka, Pavol G., and other three persons of having unlawfully transferred €730,266 of the bank’s assets to the Slovdrev company, as well as other crimes.
