Interior minister to decide on Lessy's return

The outgoing interior minister, Martin Pecina, will decide in the coming week on the possible return of former police president Petr Lessý, who was cleared recently of slander and abuse of office charges. Theoretically, a decision to reinstate Mr Lessý would leave the country with two police presidents. After his dismissal last year, Lessý was succeeded by the current police president Martin Červíček. Should it come to two presidents, the interior minister said he would launch administrative proceedings to determine who should head the police force.
