All 15 members of the Czech Television Council have acquired certificates proving they were not members of the pre-1989 People's Militia, a lower house official said. On Wednesday the council will discuss the case of Czech TV programming director Frantisek Lambert, who admits to having been in the People's Militia; members of the communist paramilitary group swore to kill anyone who tried to overthrow the regime. Czech TV director Jiri Janecek is also under pressure for allowing Mr Lambert to hold such a high position.
