Trnka continues work as prosecutor

THOUGH a disciplinary senate decided that former general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka would be stripped of his prosecutor post, he is allowed to serve as prosecutor even after Christmas. Current General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár has not used his authority to suspend Trnka as he awaits a Trnava Regional Court decision on an appeal, the Sme daily reported December 27.

THOUGH a disciplinary senate decided that former general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka would be stripped of his prosecutor post, he is allowed to serve as prosecutor even after Christmas. Current General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár has not used his authority to suspend Trnka as he awaits a Trnava Regional Court decision on an appeal, the Sme daily reported December 27.

The opposition criticises the step and says it might summon an inspection at the Office of the General Prosecutor.

A disciplinary commission imposed on Trnka the toughest ever punishment for his involvement in a controversial real estate transfer, banning him November 29, Sme reported. The so-called Glance House case pertains to the controversial transfer of a luxury residential development in Bernolákovo, a municipality near Bratislava, based on a letter sent by Trnka sidestepping an embargo by the Special Prosecutor’s Office on any dealings involving the building.

Thanks to a letter sent by Trnka to one of the conflicting sides, the building was reportedly transferred 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, according to Sme.

The Senec cadastral office allowed the transfer based on Trnka’s letter even though the Special Prosecutor’s Office had banned any property transfers connected with the building. Subsequently, the property was transferred to another firm, Gapeja.
