Senators will meet with officials from the Prague Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes and a number of its vocal critics on Tuesday ahead of selecting a new board. Relations in the institute have been strained since the removal of the institute’s former director, now Culture Minister Daniel Herman, which made the entire board quit in a show of solidarity. The institute has been criticized for neglecting the process of digitalizing former communist secret police files. Earlier this year it left the Platform of European Memory and Conscience over a dispute about whether or not it employs former communist officials.
