Prague’s municipal court will see the start next week of a case against Miroslav Vogel, a former member of the national anti-drug unit, suspected of abuse of power and blackmail as well as other crimes. The former police officer is thought to have covered up criminal activity by then-police informer Petr Ryzák, namely in the production of the illicit drug pervetin. Last year, Mr Vogel came under suspicion in a case involving a total of six members in the Liberec-based gang involved in the production of the street drug.
