General Prosecutor Čižnár appoints three senior staff members

General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár appointed René Vanek as first deputy general prosecutor, Peter Šufliarsky as deputy general prosecutor and Iveta Kopčová as the regional prosecutor for Bratislava, General Prosecutor's Office (GPO) spokeswoman Jana Tõkõlyová told the TASR newswire Thursday, August 8. “The selection committee appointed by the Slovak Council of Prosecutors submitted profiles of the candidates, who met all the prerequisites," she said. Čižnár accepted all three recommended candidates. Vanek has been working as a Deputy regional prosecutor in Bratislava. He was born in Skalica (Trnava region) in 1970 and graduated from the Law Faculty of Comenius University in Bratislava in 1996. Kopčová, too, worked as a deputy in the regional prosecution office in Bratislava, and Šufliarsky was Special Task Department Director at the General Prosecutor's Office.

The Sme daily wrote in its Friday issue that both Vanek and Šufliarsky won the posts against no competitors. They have already announced changes at the GPO, but the elected and never appointed PG Jozef Čentéš will remain the deputy at the criminal department of the GPO. Also the two men who have led the GPO until now (as the general prosecutor’s office remained open), Ladislav Tichý and Dobroslav Trnka, remain in the office – but only as standard prosecutors, according to Sme.
