Czech Post CEO to be replaced in September

The head of the state-owned company Czech Post, Roman Knap, will leave office at the end of September. Mr. Knap confirmed his pending departure after a meeting with Interior Minister Vít Rakušan on Monday. He said the reason for his departure was not the fact that he had met with  lobbyist Michal Redl who is at the centre of a huge corruption scandal, but the state of the company’s finances. An open competition will be held to fill the post.
