Starka associate released on bail

Vlastimil Spevak, an associate of controversial football boss Jaroslav Starka, has been released on bail. Both men, along with others, have been accused of organising the kidnapping which resulted in the death of Lambert Krejcir, the father of a fugitive Czech billionaire. Mr Starka was released earlier this week on a bail of 8 million crowns. In Mr Spevak's case the bail was slighter lower: 7.9 million, the equivalent of around 360,000 US dollars.
