Czech President Petr Pavel, who took office on March 9, was fined 60,000 crowns (about $2,650) for violating campaign reports. It has been reported Czech News Agency.
The publication states that the fine was imposed by the Office of Supervision of the Economic Activities of the Republican Political Party and Movements. The agency emphasizes that this monetary fine is the largest ever imposed by the ministry on an individual.
It is emphasized that bureau experts learned that Pavel’s statement on the sponsors of the election campaign was incomplete and therefore did not meet the standards set in the republic. It does not contain information about the dates of birth and place of residence of individuals, the registration numbers and legal addresses of legal entities are not specified.
CNA noted that the Czech President paid the fine on March 13.
Previously in Prague took place Official inauguration of the new President of the Czech Republic, Petr Pavel. On March 9, the head of state was sworn in at Prague Castle in the presence of deputies and senators.
