Erstwhile agriculture minister Jaroslav Palas will file a complaint with the Constitutional Court within a fortnight in connection with a recent police search of his home in Ludvíkov, north Moravia, his lawyer Matěj Zachveja said on Wednesday. Mr. Zachveja said the police were now investigating how Mr. Palas – who has also been a senator and governor of Moravia-Silesia – had funded the purchase of the house, which has an estimated value of CZK 20 million. The lawyer says the police have accused his client of taking a bribe of CZK 10 million in connection with the privatisation of a hospital.
