Lipšic punished Spišiak with three 15-percent monthly salary cuts for surpassing the speed limit by 33 km/h this summer in Nitra Region.

"The disciplinary action was pardoned in October so a bonus can be granted now," said Miklovičová. She added that Spišiak received the bonus in recognition of his outstanding performance and the achievements that the Police Corps has made under his administration.

At the time of the disciplinary action, the ministry had stated that Spišiak would not receive any bonus for 2011.
