Parents of Anna Janatková file for disciplinary proceedings against judge

The parents of 9-year-old murder victim Anna Janatková have filed for disciplinary proceedings against the judge who allowed the sole suspect in the case to avoid arrest. The man, Otakar T., was later apprehended upon discovery of the body, but committed suicide in his cell. The family has also filed a suit against the state prosecutor who they believed submitted an insufficient petition for the suspect’s arrest. However, the Interior Ministry, which received the complaint, says it will be suspended as it has found no reason for disciplinary proceedings against the judge. Anna Janatková went missing in October of last year and was found five months later in a makeshift grave. The family noted in its complaint that at the time of the suspect’s release no one knew if the child might still be alive.
