Police seeking to question MP Stupčuk over traffic accident

The police have requested that the Chamber of Deputies lift the immunity of MP Štěpán Stupčuk so they can question him. The Czech News Agency reported that the investigation likely centred on a traffic accident in February involving the Social Democrat politician. Mr. Stupčuk confirmed to the newspaper Právo that he was facing charges of endangerment under the influence. The TV station Nova reported that the police had found him alone at the scene of an accident but that he had denied being the driver and refused to take a test for alcohol.
