The former US businessman who headed Czech truck producer Tatra is seeking damages of more than 5 million crowns for criminal proceedings launched against him in the Czech Republic. Ronald Adams was charged with paying bribes in August 2012 but a court later threw out the case. Adams says his professional and personal reputation were dragged through the mud as a result. He has said the damages will be paid to an organisation fighting corruption in the public sphere. Former deputy defence minister Martin Bártak was charged in January this year with seeking bribes from the head of the truck company.
