State attorney rejects Tatra CEO's complaint

The Brno state attorney Jan Petrásek rejected a complaint on Wednesday filed by Ronald Adams, the CEO of Czech truck maker Tatra, over an investigation into alleged corruption charges against him. Mr Adams was accused of offering a bribe in order to win a Defense Ministry tender in 2009. The charges were filed by the same state attorney in August. The 62-year-old American immediately filed a complaint against the investigation after a court decided he does not need to be remanded in custody for its duration. The main witnesses against Mr Adams are former Defense Minister Martin Barták and arms dealer Michal Smrž, who are also being investigated for corruption in a case where Mr Adams is one of the key witnesses.
