A prisoner on the run was employed as chief economist by the National Museum of Agriculture from which he syphoned off ten million crowns before being detected, commercial TV Nova reported. The man who was serving a seven-year sentence for embezzlement escaped from the Hradec Králové jailhouse last summer and shortly after won an open competition for the position of chief economist at the Museum of Agriculture under a false identity. He syphoned off a third of the museum’s annual budget before being detected and once again managed to escape as police were arresting him.
