Police Academy expels 29 applicants whose tests were altered

The Police Academy in Bratislava expelled 29 candidates who were admitted to the school based on falsified entrance examinations, the TA3 news channel reported on July 21.

The Police Academy in Bratislava expelled 29 candidates who were admitted to the school based on falsified entrance examinations, the TA3 news channel reported on July 21.

“These 29 applicants ... will not be admitted, and another 29 applicants will be admitted in their place – those who scored highest in the entrance exam just below the threshold,” said the acting rector of the Police Academy, Ľuboš Wäldl, to TA3.

During the examination the applicants did not pass the score necessary for being admitted to school but their original tests were replaced by ones with correct answers, according to the TASR newswire. The police are starting prosecution of three senior academy figures including former rector Václav Krajník, who was dismissed by the academy’s senate and is also facing removal from the police corps, TA3 reported.

“Final administrative procedures are currently under way with respect to terminating his employment,” said the spokesperson for the Interior Ministry, Lucia Garajová, as quoted by TA3.

In addition to misusing his official power, Krajník is being prosecuted for corruption as he allegedly took a bribe of €5,000 from two applicants.

The former rector is in hospital recovering from a mild stroke he suffered during his interrogation, the news channel reported.
