Police recommend Tatra CEO face criminal charges

The police have recommended that criminal charges be pressed against Tatra truck company CEO Ronald Adams. The head of the Czech branch in Kopřivice was under investigation for corruption since last year. State prosecutor Jan Petrásek, who has two weeks to review the case, said in all likelihood charges would be filed in the coming days with the regional court in Brno. Mr Adams, who is an American national, is suspected of having offered a 20 million crown bribe to try and secure a military contract with the Czech Army. He was accused by former defence minister Martin Barták, himself accused in the case.
