Driving examiners, driving school head, charged

Police have charged three driving examiners and the head of a driving school east of Prague with abuse of authority by a public officer and other crimes, anti-corruption police unit spokesman Jaroslav Ibehej revealed on the unit’s website. The four are suspected of having helped more than 30 people obtain valid driver’s licenses, either by helping clients during their driver’s exam, or allowing them to miss the exam altogether, filing protocol on their behalf. The owner of the driving school, meanwhile, allegedly promised a client they could skip mandatory driving lessons altogether. The suspects in the case operated in Přelouc, near Pardubice, and Nový Bydžov, in the area of Hradec Králové.
