Two suspects in Rath corruption case released

Two of the suspects involved in the corruption scandal around MP David Rath have been released from prison. Dr. Rath and five others have been in prison since May, when the then-governor of Central Bohemia was arrested after receiving seven million crowns in a box. According to the Czech Press Agency, the head of the company Konstruktiva Branko, Pavel Drážďanský, has been released, as has the chairman of the company Puro-Klima, Martin Jireš. David Rath himself is currently appealing a verdict on bail. He and ten others are charged with bribery and manipulating public tenders.
