Witness in Janoušek case claims he was offered a bribe not to testify

A witness in the case against lobbyist Roman Janoušek told the court on Wednesday that he was approached by a third party allegedly offering him a bribe to not testify or take part in a police re-enactment of a hit-and-run that could land the defendant a sentence of up to 18 years in jail. The witness expressed the conviction the person had been sent by the lobbyist. Mr Janoušek is charged with attempted murder and driving under the influence in the incident which took place in March in 2012.
