Staff employed at the Military Prosecutor's Office will not become unemployed after the institution is shut down, Defence Minister Ľubomír Galko said last week. Galko stated he is working on the issue with the Justice Ministry, headed by Lucia Žitňanská, the TASR newswire reported.
"All prosecutors and administrative officials of the Military Prosecutor's Office will be transferred to civil prosecutor's offices. All movable and immovable assets will remain in the ownership of the Defence Ministry and we'll manage them efficiently," Galko told TASR.
"If we don't need some property ... we'll sell it in a transparent tender as advantageously as possible."
An amendment to the Act on Prosecutor's Offices was unveiled by Žitňanská earlier this month. She pointed out that after the military courts were abolished (by the former government) the Military Prosecutor's Office lost its reason for existence.
