Social Democrat sues own party

Pavel Imriš, a member of the Social Democrats, is suing the party over the state of its accounts, Mladá fronta dnes reported on Saturday. Mr Imriš says he believes that the leadership of the party should no longer have the right to dispose of the party’s assets. He argues that the actual expenses for the election campaign differ hugely from published estimates, and opposes plans of the party to make a mortgage deal with the credit bank Fio on buildings adjacent to its Prague headquarters. He considers this step financially unwise and believes that such decisions have to be approved of by the whole party at its party summit.
