26-06-2007

Health Minister Tomas Julinek on Tuesday dismissed Prague's chief hygiene officer Vladimir Polanecky and Zlin's hygiene officer Olga Groschlova, citing poor management. Mr. Polanecky countered that his sacking was a political decision, based on the fact that he is a member of the opposition Social Democrats. A spokesman for the Health Ministry said that an in-depth audit would be made in both institutions.
