Foglova confirms more dismissals

The newly-installed head of the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes Pavla Foglová has confirmed her intention to dismiss office head Pavel Žáček, head of the security services archive Zlatuše Kukanová and the institute’s deputy for economic affairs Rene Schreier. The institute’s former head Daniel Herman was dismissed last week for allegedly failing to restore order to the troubled institution and make a headway with digitalization. The institute’s 15-member academic council promptly resigned in protest of the move saying it was politically motivated.
