16-10-2010

Police are investigating alleged election fraud in the north Bohemian municipalities of Chodov, Krupka, Roudnice nad Labem, Most and others, a police spokeswoman said on Saturday. Voters were allegedly offered money to vote for a particular party; the alleged fraudsters were reportedly targeting members of the Romany community. The police have reinforced patrols in the area; however, a member of the election committee in Chodov said they believed no law was breached as the incidents did not take place in the vicinity of the polling stations.
