Detectives from Prague’s anti-corruption and financial crime unit have begun investigating last year’s halting of work on the Blanka tunnel complex in the city, the Czech News Agency reported on Tuesday. At the end of last week, officers acting on the basis of a criminal requested that City Hall hand over documents relating to the huge building project. The anti- corruption unit believe that councilors’ decision to halt construction may have unlawful, the latter said. The current Prague authorities say the contract for the over-budget tunnel job signed by their predecessors was never valid. They have requested talks with the justice minister over the matter, which is also being investigated by a police organised crime unit.
