Transport minister overhauls Czech Railways’ supervisory board

Transport Minister Zdeněk Žák has made changes to Czech Railways’ board of supervisors. Five members in the eight-member board of the state-owned firm including its chairman Libor Antoš, will be replaced, the ministry said on Friday. Czech Railways’ trade unions said the move would eventually lead to the dismissal of Czech Railways CEO, Petr Žaluda. The new supervisory board is to convene on July 30.
