The leader of the opposition TOP 09 party, Jiří Pospíšil, says he is considering sacking his assistant over the latter’s business dealings, iDnes.cz reported. The news site iRozhlas.cz reported that Jan Zedník had bought scores of apartments in the Most area with a view to capitalising on disadvantaged tenants that are mainly living on social welfare.
Though Mr. Zedník, who is a member of the Civic Democrats, said he invested in the properties to secure funds for his retirement, Mr. Pospíšil has called on him to provide an explanation of the whole matter, iDnes.cz said.
