The country’s anti-corruption unit has charged three men with attempted fraud, the unit’s spokesman Jaroslav Ibehej revealed on Friday. The men were suing the state forestry company Lesy ČR for 12 billion crowns in damages based on two IT and communications contracts dating back to 2007. Investigators found no such deals had ever been signed. If found guilty, the members of the group could face up to 10 years behind bars.
