Rampula and Grygárek resign as state prosecutors

The former Prague High State Prosecutor Vlastimil Rampula and his long-standing deputy Libor Grygarek have resigned as state attorneys. Mr. Rampula was forced to leave the High State Attorneys Office in Prague after a court upheld former justice minister Jiří Pospíšil’s decision to sack him. Vlastimil Rampula was removed on suspicion that he was helping to sweep big corruption cases involving politicians under the carpet.
