Czech EU ambassador may face dismissal

Plans are afoot for the dismissal of the country’s ambassador to the EU Milena Vicenová, Respekt reported on Monday. The weekly says that the news has been confirmed by politicians in the two strongest parties, the Civic and Social Democrats. Foreign Minister Jan Kohout himself has refused to comment. According to Respekt the official reason given was Ms. Vicenová’s lackluster performance in office. The diplomat herself said she had received no official information on her possible dismissal.
