07-06-2012

The lawyers of former Central Bohemian governor David Rath, who is charged with corruption, have announced that they are preparing to file a constitutional complaint. One of the MP’s lawyers said that there are several points in the case that have raised legal questions which need to be addressed by the Constitutional Court. In particular, Mr Rath’s lawyers believe that the way in which he was stripped of his immunity may have been at odds with Czech law. Previously, Mr Rath had filed a constitutional complaint regarding his case.
