President Ivan Gašparovič officially dismissed Václav Krajník from the post of rector of Bratislava's Police Academy, a university-level institution, based on a proposal submitted by the Interior Ministry, the TASR newswire reported.

The dismissal followed the decision of the academic senate of the academy, which recommended Krajník's dismissal at a session held on July 12.

The former rector has been charged with manipulating the entrance examinations of at least one quarter of new students for the upcoming academy year. Moreover, police investigators allege he accepted two bribes, each worth €5,000.

At the beginning of the week TV news channel TA3 reported that 29 students who had been accepted to the school fraudulently had already been excluded from the academy and would be replaced by applicants who finished below them in the official entrance exams, TASR wrote.
