Slovak arms lobbyist Miloslav Výboh on Thursday testified in favour of Marek Dalík at Prague’s Municipal Court a hearing over a corruption case involving the purchase of armoured vehicles for the Czech Army from the Austrian arms company Steyr. Mr Dalík, former prime minister Mirek Topolánek’s advisor, faces criminal charges over allegedly demanding a bribe of 500 million crowns to ensure that the lucrative order was won by the Austrian firm. The deal was eventually signed in 2009. Marek Dalík faces up to ten years in prison if found guilty of corruption.
