Former lobbyist Marek Dalík is to report to Prague’s Ruzyně prison by September 1 to begin serving his four-year sentence for corruption, the Czech News Agency reported on Wednesday. Dalík, who was a close associate of former prime minister Mirek Topolánek in the second half of the last decade, was found guilty of corruption in a case involving the purchase of armoured vehicles for the Czech Army from the Austrian arms manufacturer Steyr. Dalík’s defence lawyers have filed an appeal with the Supreme Court.
