Verdict in trial of chief auditor expected Friday

Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) president František Dohnal stands accused of misusing public funds by renting unjustifiably expensive apartments since taking up the post in 2005. The state prosecution claims that Dohnal has caused material damage to the state amounting to Kč 1.1 million. If found guilty, Dohnal — who claims the case is political — could face up to five years in prison.
