Former Czech FA head Mokrý arrested on suspicion of tax evasion

Police arrested a former head of the Czech football association, Pavel Mokrý, on Tuesday on suspicion of tax evasion. Two others were also arrested: another former member of the Czech FA executive, Václav Chvála, and Ladislav Malý, who was a senior official at the ministry of education and sports. One of the three, not believed to be Mr Mokrý, has been formally charged. The news website reported that police were investigating the activities of Fotbal Trading, a daughter company of the Czech FA which is currently in liquidation. Pavel Mokrý was chairman of Czech soccer’s governing body for four years; he stepped down at the end of last month.
