Supreme Court orders new investigation into suspicious army deals

The Supreme Court ordered on Monday a new investigation of alleged corruption related to the Czech army’s deals for the renovation of military airports. Several senior army officers were accused in 1999 of preferential treatment of certain construction firms which received deals to renovate military airports and service equipment. In 2007, a court in Prague shelved the case but two of the accused still filed a complaint with the Supreme Court. The case will now go back to the Municipal Court in Prague.
