Committee recommends that lower house allows police to add new charges against MP David Rath


The mandate and immunity committee of the lower house on Monday voted to recommend to MPs to allow police to extend charges against MP David Rath. The police want to add new charges related to purchases of equipment for Central Bohemian healthcare facilities. The former Social Democrat governor of the region has been in police custody since his arrest in May on corruption charges. He attended the committee’s session in person on Monday after he was escorted there from prison.
