Prague Castle reveals salaries of President’s top staff following court ruling

Prague Castle, the seat of the Czech Presidency, has made public the salaries of seven top officials following a court ruling stemming from a 2018 lawsuit by watchdog Platy Úředníků (Income of officials).

The Presidential Office had initially refused to provide any information about the incomes of Prague Castle staff although they are employed by the state.

The newly published data show the head of the office, Vratislav Mynář, netted around 1.6 million crowns in 2016 and 2017 including bonuses. Two other senior officials earned over 1 million crowns a year, about three times the Czech national average.
