Police have revealed that they have not been able to learn who was behind an August attack on Civic Democrat leader Mirek Topolánek, which left him with light injuries; they have said their investigation will continue. At the weekend, the police charged four men for with throwing stones and eggs at the politician during a pre-election stop. Mr Topolánek suffered a cut on the head after being hit by the projectiles. The four later turned themselves in, saying they had been recruited by an unknown party who had offered each 40,000 crowns and an additional 50,000 crowns in advance to go ahead with the move. It is not known whether the four men received any money for the attack.
