Senior officers leaving anti-corruption police unit

Senior police officers are leaving the anti-corruption and financial crime unit of the Czech police, the internet news site reports. The news report says there is growing discontent in the unit ahead of a planned overhaul under its new chief Milan Komárek. According to Novinky this state of affairs dates back to a dispute between Prague High State Attorney Lenka Bradáčová and the units’ former chief Tomáš Martinec who left his post in May as a result of the highly-publicized controversy. The stated aim of the planned overhaul is for the unit to work on fewer, but more significant cases, and to develop closer cooperation with other units of the police force. The officers who are leaving are reported to be experts in the field.
