New head of Anti-Trust Office promises greater transparency

Lawyer and deputy interior minister, Petr Mlsna, who is slated to be the next head of the Anti-Trust Office has said he will work to increase the transparency of the antitrust authority's decision-making, and intends to explain the verdicts on serious cases to the public, unlike his predecessors.

In an interview for Novinky.cz Mlsna said that he would end the practice of non-standard meetings at the office and insist that people in the top management have security clearance.

The office’s former head Petr Rafaj was dismissed over allegations of corruption and abuse of power.
