Public prosecutor’s office asks minister to suspend corrupt attorney

The Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office has asked the justice minister to temporarily suspend Prague 2 prosecutor František Fiala, one of the accused in the corruption scandal that broke last week. Mr Fiala is one of six people who were charged on Friday with bribery, fraud, blackmail, and abuse of authority. He and a Prague 2 district judge Ondřej Havlín reportedly confessed to criminal activity during police questioning. Judge Havlín remains in police custody, while the other five suspects have been released.
