Former rector of the Police Academy in Bratislava Václav Krajník has been expelled from the Police Corps, Interior Ministry spokesperson Lucia Garajová confirmed to the TASR newswire on Wednesday, August 1.

"The former Police Academy rector is no longer employed as a member of the Police Corps," claimed Garajová. Last month Krajník was dismissed by the academic senate from the school, as it was discovered that 29 applicants were admitted to the academy this year by way of falsifying their entrance examinations. Three university representatives including former rector Krajník are facing criminal prosecution over the affair. Apart from abuse of power, Krajník, 65, is being prosecuted for corruption, as he allegedly took bribes of €5,000 from two applicants. He was hospitalised briefly after the incident was published. His initial confession was later recanted.
