Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka faces administrative proceedings on suspicion of having committed a misdemeanour when he proposed Andrej Babiš for finance minister without requesting a clean screening certificate from him, the internet news site Novinky.cz reported on Thursday. A clean screening certificate would refute collaboration with the former communist secret police of which Mr. Babiš is suspected. The request for administrative proceedings against the prime minister was filed with the Prague 1 Cíty Hall by Mayor Oldřich Lomecký. The office also received the same proposal for President Miloš Zeman who appointed Babiš to the cabinet without a clean screening certificate. However no administrative proceedings can be launched against the head of state.
