THE POLICE refused to initiate prosecution based on the criminal complaint filed by Košice secondary-school teacher Oto Žarnay who has alleged wasteful spending at a Košice school.

THE POLICE refused to initiate prosecution based on the criminal complaint filed by Košice secondary-school teacher Oto Žarnay who has alleged wasteful spending at a Košice school.

Žarnay is complaining that unknown perpetrator poorly managed €5,350 and procured legal services for the school in a non-transparent way. Separately and inspection carried out by the Main Auditor of Košice Region has confirmed corrupt and wasteful spending of nearly €80,000 earlier this year, the SITA newswire reported.

Though the Košice city counsellors and representatives of the region acknowledged the report in February, nobody was punished. Žarnay said that after learning this he was disillusioned, disgusted and disappointed. Then he filled the complaint together with Ján Mičovský of Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO).

“We took a step that should have been taken by someone else,” Žarnay said, as quoted by SITA.

After interrogation of the school headmaster, who denied all the accusations, police stated that there are is no reason to start prosecution since the activities do not have the character of a criminal act.

Lucia Adamkovičová from the police added that the case is investigated by Košice office of Financial Control Administration. If it finds some suspicious, Žarnay, who lost his job after he had pointed to the misuse money, may fill criminal complaint again, the Košický Korzár daily reported.
