Lower house committee to meet over police reform on Monday


Members of an investigative committee looking into reorganization plans in the Czech police forces is scheduled to meet in the lower house on Monday. The commission, headed by former justice minister Pavel Blažek, is expected to approve a plan of investigation and decide who is going to be questioned over the matter. The results of the enquiries should be presented to the lower house by the end of October. The reform of the Czech police forces led to a row between the leaders of the ruling coalition and to the resignation of Robert Šlachta, head of the special police unit for combating organised crime.
