Chancellor Mynář says he will make public his salary if it does not violate privacy law

The head of the Office of the President, Chancellor Vratislav Mynář, has said he will make public his salary and that of all the senior office employees once he gets permission to do so from the Office for the Protection of Private Data. Mr. Mynář is a highly controversial figure on the president’s team. He has come under fire for failing to get security clearance, which is a precondition for his post, and recently raised speculation over the purchase of a villa at a surprisingly low cost from a controversial Prague businessman who is now in prison for hit-and-run.
