The regional branch of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) in Bratislava has suspended Igor Schnorrer from his post as the head of its local branch in Dunajská Lužná. Schnorrer was one of the employees of the Police Academy in Bratislava arrested by police on June 29 over the alleged manipulation of tests taken by applicants to the school, the TASR newswire reported.
The proposal for Schnorrer’s dismissal was presented by SDKÚ MP Lucia Žitňanská.
Meanwhile academy rector Václav Krajník denied police claims that he had confessed to the allegations. In an interview with the Plus Jeden Deň daily he said that he was not in fact able to give testimony since he had been paralysed by a stroke and was hospitalised at the time, the Sme daily reported.
“I do not even know what I was talking about there [i.e. at police],” he said, as quoted by Sme, adding that he will ask for the interview to be repeated.
