A regional court has imposed a year-long driving ban on the head of the traffic police department in the town of Hradec Králove who was caught drink-driving last year. Jiří Novák is to be dismissed from his post and will also have to pay a 25 thousand crown fine for the transgression. Both Novák and the state attorney have appealed the case, Novak because he disputed the validity of tests ascertaining the alcohol-content in his blood, the state attorney because he considered the verdict to light.
