Deputy general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka remains part of the senior leadership team at the Office of the General Prosecutor (GPO) despite suspicions that he aided a fraud, the Sme daily wrote in its Friday, November 23, issue.

The case involves the construction and sale of Glance House, a luxury residential development in Bernolákovo, near Bratislava. It was thanks to Trnka’s signature that the lucrative apartment building was allegedly transferred to people close to Marián Kočner, a businessman and acquaintance of Trnka's, Sme reported, The daily wrote that on Thursday, November 22, Trnka admitted for the first time having acted in the case, but insisted that he had proceeded in compliance with the law.

Asked about the case, Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák, whose Smer party backed Trnka in his failed bid to be re-selected as general prosecutor in 2010-11, said that police had acted swiftly to investigate the case and that “their hands [are] unbound”.
