Prosecutor General thinks shady land transfer could be reversed

Slovakia’s Prosecutor-General Dobroslav Trnka said on December 9 that he did not rule out the possibility that the transfer of land in the High Tatra mountains by the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) could be reversed, adding that his office will seek to resolve this affair in accordance with the law, the TASR newswire reported.

Slovakia’s Prosecutor-General Dobroslav Trnka said on December 9 that he did not rule out the possibility that the transfer of land in the High Tatra mountains by the Slovak Land Fund (SPF) could be reversed, adding that his office will seek to resolve this affair in accordance with the law, the TASR newswire reported.

Some prosecutors will scrutinise the land register in Kežmarok while others will focus on SPF. When asked about when the case might be closed, Trnka replied that the Prosecutor-General's Office will act quickly to acquire an in-depth conception of the case before the Christmas holidays.

According to Trnka, there is a reasonable suspicion that the criminal act of abusing official powers has been committed, as was the case with an SPF scandal two years ago linked to land in Veľký Slavkov.

“Let's say that this involves state representatives,” added Trnka. The state representatives – SPF’s general director Miroslav Mihálik (a Smer nominee) and his deputy Adrian Sandorčin (Movement for Democratic Slovakia, HZDS) - were dismissed on December 2 in the wake of the transfer of land in Veľká Lomnica and Stará Lesná. Premier Robert Fico said that all top representatives of SPF had failed and would be held responsible. TASR
