First Deputy General Prosecutor René Vanek filed a special appeal on October 2 against the decision of the Prešov District Court which allowed changes in the inscription of data in the Trade Registry for the Glance House, s. r. o., company.

The Prešov District Court made the decision of September 12 on the allegedly shifty real estate deal. Vanek proposed to cancel this decision and to return the case to the Prešov District Court for further trial. He also proposed the performability of this decision to be postponed, Jana Tökölyová of the GP office told the TASR newswire.

General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár recently agreed with the stance of prosecutor of the Trnava regional Prosecutor’s Office who oversees the case, as well as GP Office prosecutors who studied the case. They approved the decision of police investigator to give launch disciplinary proceeding concerning Dobroslav Trnka, then general prosecutor, who intervened in the case.

The case involves the dubious transfer of the Glance House luxury real estate development in Bernolákovo, a municipality near Bratislava. Trnka sent a letter to the head of the cadastral office in Senec (under which Bernolákovo falls), sidestepping an embargo by the Special Prosecutor’s Office on any dealings involving the building. The letter reportedly recommended to transfer the ownership of the building to Jana Šlachtová, a representative of CDI, a London-based company which has links to Marián Kočner, a controversial businessman also known to be on friendly terms with Trnka, the daily Sme wrote in September. Rather than a criminal prosecution, there will probably be a disciplinary proceeding launched against Trnka.
