State attorney drops criminal proceedings against Kula

16-07-2008

The state attorney has dropped criminal proceedings against the head of the Prison Service Luděk Kula, on the grounds of insufficient evidence. Kula was accused of breach of trust and mismanagement of state funds in connection with an order for mobile telephone jamming systems in prisons, as a result of which the state lost out on twenty million crowns. Kula says there was no ill-intent on his part and that he had simply been poorly advised on financial matters.
