The police extended the charge against the Czech Football Association and its former chairman, Miroslav Pelta, in the case of corruption-related sport subsidies. Czech TV today announced today that it will launch its first television program.
Pelta says he has done nothing wrong. Until now, Pelta and other people and organizations have been persecuted for abuse of power, breach of contract for privileges in government contracts or external asset management under alleged manipulation of subsidies.
"Criminal prosecution in this criminal case relates to one individual and one bribery of a legal entity," said General Prosecutor K.Lenka Bradakova. Pelta hired former Deputy Minister of Education Simone Kratochvilova, who has a flat on the Czech TV in the center of Prague. Criminal proceedings were instituted against Kratochilova. According to police, Pelta advised on the allocation of subsidies.
"As I said in the past, I'm telling you today that I have not done anything illegal," CTK said. According to her lawyer, Olzhzhitch Chudova, it would be an extension of the allegations that the former suspect must be supported. "Of course, Mr. Pelta's comments on this matter are justified," he said.
According to the Czech TV, it is widespread due to the charge delay. Initially, detectives decided to close it in late October, but now they want to hear the new charges against Pelek. At the beginning of the next year, prosecutors make a decision to file a suit.
The case relates to the manipulation of the activities of sports organizations in the allocation of funds from the subsidy program of the Ministry of the Interior. Along with the soccer community, Pelty and Kratochvílová are also persecuted by Former Foreign Minister Zdenech Brix, the Czech Sports Union, Miroslav Jánst, the Union of the Union and the Secretary General of the Union, Yan Boach.
