Prague’s Supreme Court has set aside the verdict in a corruption case surrounding former politician David Rath and sent the matter back to the city’s Regional Court to be heard again. A Supreme Court spokesperson said on Tuesday that as a written resolution on the verdict had not yet been drawn up, it was not possible to give the reasons for the judges’ decision. Mr. Rath, a former minister and regional governor, was last year found guilty of bribe-taking and sentenced to 8.5 years in prison and the forfeiture of CZK 20 million in property.
