Central Bohemian regional councilmen will not resign over Rath

Central Bohemian regional councilmen have decided to retain their positions following the arrest of former governor David Rath. The regional council met on Monday to consider whether its members bore political responsibility for any of Mr Rath’s supposed crimes of accepting a bribe and damaging the interests of the EU. Deputy Governor Marcel Chládek said he moved that the entire council resign; two members voted for the proposal, one abstained and the others voted against it.
