Interior minister acted within the law in sacking police president

A state attorney has said the interior minister did not break the law in sacking the former police president Petr Lessy. Although the police president cannot by rights be recalled from office unless he or she commits a crime Interior Minister Jan Kubice sacked Mr. Lessy shortly after bringing accusations of abuse of office and libel against him. Mr. Lessy’s lawyer Vaclav Laska said he intended to lodge another more extensive criminal complaint against the interior minister on his client’s behalf.
