Former defence minister in trouble for posting transcriptions of police interrogations

Police are investigating whether former defence minister Vlasta Parkanová did not break the law when she published transcriptions of the police’s interrogations of all of the witnesses and accused persons in a case in which she faces charges of authorising an overpriced contract to purchase military planes. The former minister posted the materials on her own website without comment. The case has also been handed to the Office for Protection of Private Data. Several witnesses whose testimonies were published have protested against the move.
