Former Tatra company manager stands trial
Ronald Adams, the former head of the Tatra truck company, is standing trial on charges of corruption. Mr. Adams is suspected of having offered a 20 million crown bribe in connection with the delivery of Tatra off-road vehicles to the Czech military. The accusation against him was raised by former defense minister Martin Bartak, who himself faces charges in the case. Mr. Adams has admitted to making the offer, but claims he was only bluffing in order to test defense ministry officials.
