Lower house creates committee to probe leak of police information


The lower house of parliament has agreed to create an investigative committee to look into the possible leaking of police documents in connection with outgoing finance minister and ANO leader Andrej Babíš. The seven person committee will focus on suspicions that police documents were leaked in connection with tapes which purportedly showed Babíš talking with a former reporter on one of his national newspapers about how to use information discrediting other politicians. Babíš, who stepped down as finance minister on Wednesday, described the move as part of an ongoing campaign against him.
