Justice minister wins cassation complaint against Rampula

The Supreme Administrative Court has upheld the justice minister’s decision to sack Vlastimil Rampula from the post of Prague High State Attorney, invalidating a ruling by the Prague city court which reinstated him in office. The Supreme Administrative Court reviewed the case following a cassation complaint from Justice Minister Jiří Pospíšil who sacked Rampula in July of last year for allegedly dragging his feet on corruption cases involving politicians. The case will now return to the Prague city court.
