The high court in Olomouc dropped charges against the former head of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERÚ) Alena Vitásková in the case of the fraudulent issuing of licenses for solar power plants. According to the judge, there was not enough evidence that would prove Vitásková’s guilt.
The regional court in Brno previously found Vitásková guilty of assisting in the fraudulent issuing of license, handing her an 8.5 year sentence. According to the verdict, she prevented investigation into the matter, enabling those involved to meet a deadline for substantially higher subsidy payments.
