The Supreme State Prosecutor’s office reports that crime associated with corruption is declining. According to the institution’s annual report, 112 people were investigated on corruption charges in 2009 compared to 126 the year before. The office admits however that the decline does not correspond to the actual state of corruption. Transparency International believes that the authorities responsible for criminal investigations are not carrying out their work properly. The chairman of Transparency International, Václav Láska said it was impossible that the number of people investigated and charged could go down when the degree of corruption in the country was on the rise.
