Peake’s sacking causes government crisis

Karolina Peake was sacked on Thursday afternoon eight days after taking up the post of Defense Minister.

The premier said Ms Peake did not comply with his request to withdraw her dismissal of her first deputy Vlastimil Picek, which she issued the next day after her confirmation.
