Czech ministers meet after two-week holiday

After a two-week holiday, the Czech cabinet will hold an informal meeting at the Liblice Chateau near Mělník in Central Bohemia on Tuesday afternoon. Ministers are expected to focus on strategy, with a particular emphasis on responding to the energy crisis.

Prime Minister Petr Fiala is also expected to discuss the head of the Office for Foreign Affairs and Relations, Petr Mlejnek, with the minister of the interior, Vít Rakušan. Mr. Mlejnek has been criticised for his contacts with Michal Redl, an influential businessman implicated in a major criminal investigation.
