One of the Civic Democratic Party’s most generous private donors in 2013 was a 22-year-old hairdresser on maternity leave who has no private income, according to Saturday’s edition of Mladá fronta Dnes. The paper notes that the young woman who gave the Civic Democrats a gift of one million crowns does not even own the cottage where she has permanent residence. The young woman in question refused to comment and party deputy chair Martin Kupka said the party was not in a position to check out the private finances of its donors. Party leader Petr Fiala said he knew nothing about the affair since he was not party chairman at the time. The party has had problems in the past with contributions from non-existent or fake donors.
