Prague’s mayor has been questioned by police over suspicions that the top councillors committed crimes when agreeing financing and technical details of the troubled Blanka tunnel project. Tomáš Hudeček repeated after Thursday’s 90 minute session with police that he believed he and other leading council members are victims of unjustified smears. The police probe centers on agreement by Prague’s governing Civic Democrat and TOP 09 coalition at the end of 2012 on a programme of ongoing work and the payment of Kč 2.5 billion to constructor Metrostrav. The council later rescinded that approval and all construction work on the delayed road tunnel pending arbitration between the company and council.
