Frýdek-Místek town council members charged over corruption

The former and current town councilors of the north Moravian Frýdek-Místek have been charged over alleged overpriced tenders given out from 2010 to 2012. Former mayor, current councilwoman and senator for the Social Democratic party Eva Richtrová told the Czech News Agency that the corruption charges were apparently filed on Friday, although she has not yet received any formal paperwork. The police would have to file a request with the senate to rescind Mrs. Richtrová’s parliamentary immunity in order to prosecute her.
