Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák will propose that President Ivan Gašparovič appoint the aide of Justice Minister Tomáš Borec, Lucia Kurilovská, as the new rector of the Police Academy in Bratislava.

The Sme daily reported on April 11 that Kurilovská will fill the vacancy left by the departure of Vaclav Krajník, following his indictment on corruption charges. She would be the first woman at the helm of the academy, where female students currently form a majority. Kurilovská has been teaching for 20 years at the Law Faculty of Comenius University. She told Sme that the era of corruption and manipulated admission tests at the academy has ended.
