31-03-2011

Members of the Prague city council for the opposition TOP 09 party called on Thursday on deputy mayor Karel Březina, from the Social Democrats, to step down. Mr Březina faces unspecified charges in connection with his membership on the boards of several firms that went bankrupt. Mr Březina, who denies any wrongdoing and has filed a complaint against the police actions, can rely on support from his party and well as the Civic Democrats who control the City Hall.
