10-05-2019

Former Social Democratic Party deputy Petr Wolf, who has been on the run since 2013, when he was convicted of subsidy fraud, is hiding in Paraguay, Czech Television reported citing police sources.

The police reportedly lost trace of him in Paraguay. Although an international arrest warrant has been issued on him, Wolf has so far avoided detention.

The million crown fine meted out by the court was paid in instalments from different destinations, even while the former MP was on the run.
