Police Academy Replaces 29 Cadets after Rigged Exam Scandal
Following the recent scandal over underhand practices being employed at the Police Academy, a total of 29 police cadets have been scored off the list and expelled as their entrance exams had been rigged.
The case led to criminal charges being brought against the former rector Vaclav Krajnik and two other top officials of the academy, who are now set also to be dismissed from the force. Bribes of up to EUR 5,000 allegedly changed hands, meaning Krajnik at least is also facing corruption charges. He was admitted to hospital following a mild stroke he incurred while being interrogated.
