Supreme attorney wants to reopen major amnesty cases

23-04-2013

The Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman has filed extraordinary appeals to reopen seven cases that were closed as a result of the New Year’s presidential amnesty. Mr. Zeman is focusing particularly on the cases involving companies Progres Invest and H-System accused of fraud, as well as those of fugitive defendants like Milan Šenfeld, Jiří Štěpánek and Martin Bajger. All of these cases were closed in January, since the amnesty announced by former president Václav Klaus applied to cases that were open for longer than eight years.
