Prague Municipal Court says Rampula’s dismissal was not justified

21-02-2012

In related news, the Prague Municipal Court, which on Tuesday made available the full text of the verdict, said Mr. Rampula’s dismissal was not sufficiently justified. The ruling has also undermined the position of Justice Minister Jiří Pospíšil who sacked Mr. Rampula at the request of Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman. Some observers claim that the controversy may be linked to efforts by the junior coalition party Public Affairs to gain control of the Justice Ministry, a claim the party has strongly rejected.
