The anti-corruption police are investigating past activities by controversial lobbyist Roman Janoušek on a number of counts, the Czech daily Mlada fronta Dnes reports. The case was spurred by wiretapped conversations between Mr Janousek and former Prague mayor Pavel Bém, part of which were leaked earlier this year and reported in the Czech media. The head of the anti-corruption unit, Tomáš Martinec, confirmed that two incidents were being investigated, one related to the sale of land to the Prague transit authority, the other into whether Mr Janoušek influenced changes in the city’s development plan. The first case alone may have cost the city tens of millions of crowns.
