Brno, July 10 (CTK) – The Czech Constitutional Court (US) has rejected a complaint lodged by former defence minister Martin Bartak about the circumstances of his criminal prosecution over alleged corruption, CTK found out from the court’s database yesterday.
The court made the decision without public hearing in June.
Bartak is suspected of having asked for a bribe in connection with the purchase of Tatra lorries for the military in 2008.
The police started to prosecute Bartak last November. Bartak lodged another constitutional complaint against the protracted investigation still before, but the court also dismissed it.
In the complaint that the court has just dismissed Bartak claimed that he is being prosecuted illegally, that evidence is missing in the case and that the deed for which he is prosecuted does not have all law-embedded signs of a criminal act.
