Kubice requests investigation into claims of political pressure on police

Interior Minister Jan Kubice has asked the Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman to look into claims that political pressure was exerted on the police in connection with the CASA investigation. Mr. Kubice said he wanted the matter investigated despite receiving assurances from police president Petr Lessy that the investigation was proceeding as it should. Mr. Lessy told Czech Television that the calls from the finance minister had not in any way affected the work of the police on the case.
