A communist member of South Bohemia’s regional council, Václav Kučera, will step down next week, the daily Právo reported on Saturday. Mr Kučera found himself under public pressure to resign over his collaboration with communist-era military intelligence, part of the notorious StB secret police. The Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia won seats on several Czech regional governments in last year’s elections which provoked a series of protests, particularly in the South Bohemian and Karlovy Vary regions.
