Another three drivers’ licence commissioners charged with bribery

Police have charged another three drivers’ licence commissioners from Prague City Hall with accepting bribes. A total of 17 commissioners are under investigation for issuing licences to scores of individuals in exchange for payments of 2 to 15 thousand crowns. Seven driving instructors and owners of driving schools are also being investigated in the affair. Drivers’ licence applicants in Prague have faced long delays due to the investigation, which has left only a handful of commissioners at the city licensing office.
