The police proposed to indict ex-chancellor Mynar | iRADIO

--

The police proposed to indict ex-chancellor Vratislav Mynář because of the subsidy for the reconstruction of the boarding house in Osvětimany. Czech Television reported on this on Wednesday. This was confirmed to Radiožurnál by supervising prosecutor Martin Malůš from the Zlín branch of the Regional State Attorney’s Office in Brno. Mynář’s company Clever Management received a grant of 5.99 million crowns 13 years ago. Later, the authorities concluded that she had made an unauthorized request for the money. The company returned the subsidy last year.

“The accused has familiarized himself with the results of the investigation. And the police handed over the file to the public prosecutor’s office with a proposal to file an indictment,” Hynek Olma, spokesman for the Regional Public Prosecutor’s Office in Brno, told Radiožurnál.

“I know nothing about it. It’s hard for me to comment on that,” Vratislav Mynář responded to iROZHLAS.cz. According to his words, even his lawyer Lukáš Trojan did not know about it. The supervising public prosecutor must now decide on the possible filing of an indictment.

Since 2021, Mynář has been accused of subsidy fraud and of harming the interests of the European Union. He has pleaded not guilty in the past.

The problem of two subsidies

The European subsidy for the boarding house in Osvětimany in Uherskohradiště region was allocated to the company by the office of the Regional Council of the Central Moravian Cohesion Region, which administers the distribution of part of the EU subsidies.

After an audit of the funding, during which it encountered doubts, the authority asked the police to verify the subsidy. According to the office, the company Clever Management did not state in the application for a subsidy, contrary to the instructions, that the building had already been subsidized by the Ministry of Education.

In 2008, the Ministry approved 13 million crowns intended for hostels for athletes from the Chřibák Association, in which Mynář was the landlord. The project was subsequently taken over by the Clever Management company and signed a lease agreement with the association.

However, the contract could be in conflict with the terms of the subsidy – the association was not allowed to rent the building to anyone for ten years. According to the police, the support was paid illegally.

Extenuating circumstance?

Last April, Mynář’s company Clever Management returned the subsidy of 5.99 million crowns. But it was not clear why she took this step. However, returning the money could help Mynář in court if he is indicted.

“Compensation for the damage caused is one of the general mitigating circumstances,” Hynek Olma from the state attorney’s office confirmed earlier the possibility of this motivation.
