Police Academy senate proposes removal of accused rector

The senate of the Academy of Police Corps vote to sack the academy’s rector on July 12 after he was accused of corruption and bribery, the TASR newswire reported.

All 17 members of the senate who were present unanimously decided to dismiss Václav Krajník, the TASR newswire wrote. The senate has 20 members and 3/5 (12 votes) were needed to dismiss the academy head, said Jozef Haládik, the head of the senate. He told TASR that the charges against Krajník harmed the good reputation of the academy and that Krajník violated his professional oath as rector. Within three days, the chair of the senate must file a proposal with Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák to dismiss Krajňák.

Krajník was arrested on June 29 during a police operation codenamed Mahoney in which it is alleged that Krajník tampered with academy entrance examination results. He has been now charged with abuse of power by a public official. Police have also charged the academy’s bursar, Igor Schnorrer, and one other unnamed employee, the Sme daily wrote.
