Ex-PM Babiš's appeal regarding communist secret police rejected

Former Czech prime minister Andrej Babiš has been unsuccessful in his appeal against the verdicts of the Bratislava regional court and the Supreme Court in his native Slovakia regarding whether he worked as an agent for the Czechoslovak secret police (StB) under communism. The Slovak Constitutional Court announced on Wednesday that his claim that he was wrongfully registered in the archives as a former StB agent has been rejected. Mr. Babiš announced last year that his lawyers had already filed a fresh lawsuit against the verdicts.
