Prague – The Prague Transport Company (DPP) today announced a selection process for all positions of directors, which also applies to the entire board of directors, including CEO Petr Witowski. He did so on the instructions of the management of Prague, which owns the company one hundred percent. City spokesman Vít Hofman told ČTK. Due to suspicion of corruption in the DPP, the police charged several people in June, including the then deputy mayor Petr Hlubuček (formerly STAN), who was also a member of the supervisory board of the DPP, and now a former member of the board Matej Augustín.
There are more directors of individual sections in DPP than members of the board of directors, but each of the members is nevertheless also a director. In addition to being a member of the board of directors, Augustín was in charge of the company’s finances. According to the deputy mayor for transport Adam Scheinherr (Praha Sobě), the company announced the audition for his position immediately after he was accused. “By announcing the selection procedure for other members of the DPP management, we are giving a clear signal that the company is starting again, better and with a clean slate,” said the deputy today. He added that the choice of the new management of the company will be up to the new political representation that will emerge from the upcoming elections.
