“The general prosecutors agreed that signing this programme of cooperation is not only a formal act but its implementation will bring balanced and constructive cooperation at an expert level,” Dalibor Skladan, spokesperson for the General Prosecutor’s office, told the TASR newswire.

The cooperation should be implemented in the years 2022 and 2023. It applies to the fields of corruption, extremism, cyber-criminality, ecological crimes as well as the protection of dependent children and people with health disabilities.

Žilinka was criticised in Slovakia for travelling to Moscow to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Russian prosecutor’s office. Russian General Prosecutor Igor Krasnov is on the sanction list of the EU for violating human rights.
