Zeman expresses support for High State Attorney Ivo Ištvan

President Miloš Zeman has met with Olomouc High State Attorney Ivo Ištvan to publicly voice support for his crusade against corruption. Mr. Ištvan is supervising the high profile case of alleged spying and corruption that brought down the centre-right government of former prime minister Petr Nečas. Thursday’s meeting between the president and high state attorney came in the wake of an angry statement from the former prime minister who accused state attorneys of “harassing politicians and trying to run the country”. President Zeman assured Mr. Ištan that he had his full support in conducting a thorough and independent investigation into the affair.
