Police accused on Thursday two men of procurement fraud related to the 2009 World Nordic Ski Championships in Liberec. One of the accused is a former rector of Liberec’s Technical University. Both men allegedly hired a company without a public tender to renovate the university’s dormitories. A police spokesman said that based on their previous experience, the men must have realized they breached the law. The 12-day event, held in the northern city of Liberec in February and March 2009, ended with debts of 106 million crowns.
