Ladislav Dubovský, the former mayor of the town of Tornaľa in southern Slovakia, was found hanged in a prison hospital in Trenčín on Thursday, March 31. Interior Ministry spokesman Peter Bubla said he had probably committed suicide, the SITA newswire reported.

Dubovský was accused of having violated his duties in handling property entrusted to him and of having abused the powers of a public official. In February, his trial was postponed twice due to his hospitalisation. The former mayor was imprisoned in September 2010, after police arrested him in Gemerská Hôrka. He had been wanted since July 2010, when he had escaped from a police patrol escorting him to the town of Revúca for questioning by investigators.
