Former head of National Technical Museum sacked for unethical conduct

20-08-2010

The former director of the National Technical Museum, Horymír Kubíček, who was sacked by the culture minister on Thursday, is suspected of enriching himself at the museum’s expense. The daily Mladá fronta Dnes said the former general director increased his salary several-fold by giving himself undeserved monthly and annual bonuses. The paper wrote that the official was making as much as the country’s president. There are also claims that several exhibits from the museum have gone missing. The culture minister, Jiří Besser, has sent in independent auditors.
