Former industry minister Martin Kocourek charged

Police have charged former industry minister Martin Kocourek with damaging a creditor. While the police did not state what case the charges apply to, Mr Kocourek was found late last year to have transferred 16 million crowns under unusual circumstances. Anti-corruption police are still investigating that case. Mr Kocourek’s ex-wife filed charges against him when he said that he had moved the money to an account of his mother’s in order to keep them out of his divorce settlement.
