Committee rules that controversial dean who attended pro-Russia rally violated code of ethics

The Ethics Committee at Prague’s University of Economics ruled on Wednesday that controversial dean Miroslav Ševčík violated the school's code of ethics. The Ethics Committee looked into the matter at the request of the university's rector Petr Dvořák, who has called for Mr. Ševčík's removal from the faculty management, saying that the dean is damaging the school's reputation. However, Mr. Ševčík was defended on Monday by his faculty's own ethics commission.

Mr. Ševčík, who heads a faculty at the university, made headlines in March when he appeared at a pro-Russian rally and was implicated as part of a group trying to remove the Ukrainian flag from the National Museum in Prague.
