Minister struggles to find new rector for Police Academy

Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák has not been able to find a suitable candidate to fill the position of rector at the Police Academy, the Sme daily reported on March 21. The post has been vacant since July, when President Ivan Gašparovič recalled Václav Krajník, the previous incumbent, following accusations of corruption and abuse of power by a public official.

Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák has not been able to find a suitable candidate to fill the position of rector at the Police Academy, the Sme daily reported on March 21. The post has been vacant since July, when President Ivan Gašparovič recalled Václav Krajník, the previous incumbent, following accusations of corruption and abuse of power by a public official.

Minister Kaliňák said, as reported by Sme, that the new rector should be at least “an elementary kind of personality who is able to return to the school its lost credit”. Originally, the academic senate was to elect the new rector; however, since January 2013, an amendment to the University Law has been in effect according to which the interior minister selects the rector of the Police Academy. When pushing though the respective amendment, Kaliňák reportedly had someone mind, but they are not currently available.

The claims against Krajník, who stands accused of taking bribes during admission exams, remain unproven, Sme wrote.
