The Security Committee of the lower house is holding a special session on the functioning of the High State Attorney’s Office in Prague. The session, called by the head of the security committee Radek John, of Public Affairs, was called to throw more light on an in-depth audit ordered by the provisional head of the High State Attorney’s Office in Prague Stanislav Mečl. However critics say that the real reason for the meeting is the politicization of a rift between the Supreme State Attorney’s Office and the High State Attorney’s Office in Prague.
Relations between the two institutions are strained in the wake of a court ruling last week which effectively reinstated Vlastimil Rampula –whom the Supreme State Attorney had accused of sweeping corruption cases involving politicians under the carpet - to his post at the head of the Prague High State Attorney’s Office.
