Former general prosecutor Dobroslav Trnka faces formal charges for abusing the powers of a public official, pertaining to the Gorilla corruption scandal.
The prosecutor of the Special Prosecutor's Office filed the indictment against Trnka with the Bratislava I District Court on May 3, the General Prosecutor's Office spokesperson Dalibor Skladan announced.
The investigator of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) proposed the prosecution service to press formal charges against Trnka in early March 2021. The NAKA investigator concluded that the former general prosecutor failed to fulfill his legal duty and prosecute all the crimes he had learned of while in the post. He thus abused his powers as general prosecutor, in a serious manner and in the long run.
