The corruption charges against former defence minister Vlasta Parkanova remain in place after the Supreme State Attorney’s Office rejected her complaint against the proceedings. Mrs. Parkanova has been charged with mismanagement of state funds and abuse of office in connection to the purchase of CASA military planes for the Czech army, a contract that independent auditors deemed severely overpriced. Mrs Parkanová herself says her conscience is clear. If convicted she could face up to ten years’ imprisonment.
