President Klaus meets with interior minister

President Václav Klaus on Friday met with Interior Minister Radek John to discuss the situation in the country’s police force and the minister’s reasons for demanding the resignation of the police president. The interior minister said at a press briefing in Prague last week that he was highly dissatisfied with the way the country’s elite police units were functioning and put the blame on the police president for reportedly not being in control of the situation. The criticism came shortly after Police president Oldřich Martinu’s chief deputy resigned, citing constant discord between the country’s elite police units.
