Former army generals cleared of property mismanagement charges
The Czech Supreme Court on Wednesday cleared two former army generals Rostislav Mazurek and Radoslav Rotrekl of property mismanagement charges. The men had landed suspended sentences over their roles in overseeing dubious acquisitions of hats, towels, shirts and other material for the Czech army. The top court however said the former generals were in charge of strategic planning rather than acquisitions; the court also found the men had no personal gain from the purchases.
