Police find 30 million crowns stashed in floor of Rath’s home

Police uncovered an additional 30 million crowns hidden in the floor of the home of Social Democrat and Central Bohemian governor David Rath, a source close to the investigation has told daily Mladá fronta Dnes. Mr Rath was caught red-handed carrying an apparent bribe of seven million crowns. Prominent members of the Social Democratic Party on Tuesday called on Mr Rath to give up all official posts. In a statement issued through his spokeswoman, Mr Rath denied any knowledge of the bribe, claiming he had thought the shoebox he was carrying contained a bottle of wine.
