Former post Velvet Revolution Czechoslovak interior minister Richard Sacher has died. Sacher was elected to the federal assembly in 1990 as a Christian Democrat. He was best known for his short stint as interior minister between December 1989 and June 1990, during which time the Communist era secret police, the StB, was broken up. But Sacher was later involved in controversy over the claims that he allowed many of the secret police documents to be destroyed or go missing.
