Health Minister Julinek dismisses Prague's chief hygiene officer


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.
