THE POLICE have dismissed second motion filed by former teacher Oto Žarnay in connection with the Business Academy Polárna in Košice, saying there is no reason to launch criminal prosecution.

Žarnay complained about the alleged violation of duties when administering someone else’s property. He objected to the steps by the school’s headmaster Peter Ivan who created two new working positions: third headmaster’s deputy and school’s matron. According to the main auditor of Košice Region, the school non-transparently spent €66,756 between 2011 and 2013, the TASR newswire reported.

The school has denied the results of inspection.

During the investigation, the school heard then main auditor Vojtech Farkaš, as well as Ivan. Based on the scrutiny and obtained documents, the investigator claimed that Ivan did not commit a crime. He had the right to create the jobs, which he also included to the organisational schemes of the school and into expenses, as reported by TASR.

Earlier this year, the police dismissed another motion filed by Žarnay and Ján Mičovský, MP for the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) movement. They pointed to the alleged machinations in public procurement at the Business Academy Polárna. The motion pertained to competition over legal services for which the school paid a certain amount every month. The procurer, according to inspectors, did not act transparently and gave the order to bidder selected in advance, TASR wrote.
