Pochybnosti kolem policejního prezidenta trvají

The Anticorruption Endowment (NFPK) rejects the attempts to relativize the impact of information, included in the GIBS resolution concerning Police President Tomáš Tuhý. These attempts occurred in connection with a “dispute” over character, cited in an SMS message.        

The Anticorruption Endowment (NFPK) recently published the text of a GIBS resolution concerning the vetting of the Police President and other persons. Following the appearance of the former head of BIS before the parliamentary commission of inquiry, which investigates the disconcerting circumstances of the police reorganization attempt, the media reported on efforts being made to render the information about the GIBS resolution position untrustworthy and to play down its importance. The Anticorruption Endowment (NFPK) rejects such attempts and states the following:  

The key warning text message is cited in the GIBS resolution merely as being an SMS sent to businessman David Tesařík. There is only one reference indicating that some message was also sent from David Tesařík’s telephone to somebody who warned him. But even if the SMS text, containing information about a planned police raid, had been outbound (from businessman Tesařík’s circles to those of Police President Tuhý, the relevance of this message would not have been changed. It would have followed from the SMS text that people around David Tesařík must have known about the planned raid and contacted for some reason their contacts in the vicinity of the Police President. Why would they have done it? It would have seemed, on the face of the SMS contents, that its author wants to hear all about the raid from his contacts close to the Police President. In such case, the only stunning factor is the trust with which the sender of the SMS text contacts the Police President’s people, although he knows a raid is planned.

Of grave relevance are also the clauses in the GIBS resolution, which essentially seem to indict the Police President as the one who lost the count of recent and other circumstances that have been disclosed by the media in the past.

The Anticorruption Endowment (NFPK) also notes that immediately after the disclosure of the GIBS resolution on its website, some of its employees were contacted by GIBS agents, and some of our employees provided “an explanation” and signed a formal protocol in official quarters. GIBS agents also wanted to know who physically put his finger on the text of the resolution, how the Endowment receives delivered mail, etc. If the resolution, as disclosed, were a fabrication, one could hardly have expected such an extent of deep interest on the part of GIBS.  

The Anticorruption Endowment is a fully independent initiative by people radically unprepared to accept a high level of corruption in state administration. One of our goals is to help expose corruption in state administration and support projects exposing corruption.
