The Supreme Court has ordered the reopening of two criminal cases halted by ex-president Klaus’ New Year’s amnesty, the daily Pravo reports. The cases relate to extensive tax evasion and fraudulent car-dealing. Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman has reportedly targeted another five cases which he would like to see reopened, among them the notorious H-System and Progres Invest fraud involving hundreds of millions of crowns. The 2013 presidential amnesty saw over 7,000 prisoners released and halted the prosecution of hundreds of cases, including high-profile cases of corruption.
