The police want to file charges against the former Czech ambassador to Australia Juraj Cmiel. Investigators say they have evidence that Mr. Chmiel manipulated a public procurement deal. He reportedly waived the need for a tender on a large project by dividing it up into five smaller ones. The file on the case has been handed to the Prague 1 state attorney’s office. Mr. Chmiel could be charged with abuse of office and mismanagement of public funds.
