ÚOHS fines Interior Ministry for purchasing weapons for Police without holding tender

The Office for the Protection of Economic Competition (ÚOHS) has fined the Ministry of the Interior 800,000 crowns for concluding a contract to purchase rifles and submachine guns for the Czech Police without holding a tender.
