A Prague district court acquitted Martin Knetig, one-time advisor to the former Czech environment minister Pavel Drobil, of corruption charges on Tuesday. The state attorney appealed the verdict on the spot. Mr Knetig was accused of corruption after allegedly demanding a bribe from a bank officer in connection with depositing the State Environmental Fund’s money into a number of unspecified banks in 2010. Allegedly, Mr Knetig sought to collect money for the Civic Democratic Party. Pavel Drobil resigned as Environment Minister in December 2010 in relation to the same scandal.
