Thirty cases across the Czech Republic
The Anticorruption Endowment (NFPK) used open sources to compile a far-from-complete list of cases that might elucidate the reader on the intricacies of governance in certain regions and municipalities of the Czech Republic. Most of them are evidence of to close relationships between political figures and businesses, or indeed also dirty political infighting, and shared political and business interests. Some cases overtly or covertly betray corruption and clientelism. Due to their extent, only cases occurring since 2007 have been selected on random basis. However, the list is open-ended.
The Anticorruption Endowment at least partially reacts to the many critical voices calling for better exposure and description of local affairs and cases. Local affairs and cases more closely affect Czech citizens than the “big” scandals evolving on government and similar levels. Therefore the Anticorruption Endowment intends to more closely target such local developments. A description of another “thirty cases” might easily ensue. The Anticorruption Endowment welcomes public inputs in this sense.
Our account of the cases covers the period till March 2016.
