An investigator on Wednesday, December 5, pressed the first charges in relation to a disputed property transfer in Bernolákovo (Bratislava Region), allegedly enabled by a letter written by deputy general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka, the TASR newswire reported, quoting police spokesperson Anna Dobiašová.
The police have pressed charges against the director of the Senec cadastral office, which is alleged to have approved the transfer of the property based on a letter sent by Trnka, even though the Special Prosecutor's Office had put an embargo on all dealings involving the building. The director is thought to have sidestepped the embargo and made possible the transfer to London-based company CDI, which subsequently passed the property on to a Galanta-based firm undergoing bankruptcy proceedings.
"In relation to the Glance House case, a National Anti-Corruption Unit investigator has launched another two criminal prosecutions concerning the crime of distorting the data of economic and commercial records," Dobiašová added.
