INTERIOR Minister Robert Kaliňák will seek the dismissal of the disputable ruling issued by the Supreme Court panel led by Štefan Harabin with which he cast doubt on the Interior Ministry inspection.

The minister said after the July 1 governmental session that he will turn to General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár and ask him to submit the special appeal against the verdict. He also plans to address the Justice Ministry.

“The arguments are on our side,” Kaliňák said, as quoted by the TASR newswire, referring to the provisions of the Criminal Code, the law on police, and the law on state service of police officers.

The panel allegedly deliberately circumvented several laws and substituted them with ‘per analogiam’ term.

“It is an arbitrary ruling issued in effort to solve one’s personal problems, as it already appeared in the history of Mr Harabin,” Kaliňák added, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The minister based his decision on the legal analysis they have at their disposal, ministry spokesperson Ivan Netík told TASR.

The disputable ruling concerns the liberation of a police officer identified as M. P. whom the Specialised Criminal Court found guilty of corruption. The panel said that the case was investigated by the Interior Ministry inspection which it found to be in violation of the law, SITA wrote.

Čižnár has already ordered the penal department of the General Prosecutor’s Office to scrutinise the ruling, whether it meets conditions for submitting the special appeal, the Pravda daily wrote.
