A court has rejected a request from MP David Rath to be released from prison on bail. The District Court for Prague East made the decision on Friday citing concerns that the former governor of Central Bohemia could flee the country. Two other suspects involved in the corruption scandal were released on bail this week. Dr. Rath and five others have been in prison since May, when the then-governor of Central Bohemia was arrested after receiving seven million crowns in a box. He and ten others are charged with bribery and manipulating public tenders.
