Businessman Michal Redl, prosecuted for corruption in the Dosimeter case, can stand trial, according to a new medical opinion, he can perceive criminal proceedings. This was reported by the Seznam Zpravy server with a link to several reliable sources. In the past, until last year, Redl had limited autonomy due to his mental state. The police, which commissioned the report, the High Prosecutor’s Office and Redl refrained from commenting.
A new expert opinion states that the forty-nine-year-old Redl can perceive criminal proceedings. That is, to understand what he is accused of, and also to understand, for example, the meaning of interrogations at the police or in court, Seznam Zprávy wrote.
Prosecutor Adam Borgula, who is in charge of the Dosimeter case, did not comment on the information. “Except for the information already communicated, it is not possible to communicate further details at this stage of the proceedings,” he said only.
The accused and their lawyers are now familiarizing themselves with the file. This phase is usually followed by the filing of an indictment.
More than ten people were accused in the main branch of the Dosimeter case. The police say that an organized group led by Redl systematically occupied key positions in the Prague transport company so that the appointed friendly managers could influence tenders in order to obtain bribes from the winning companies. Former influential Prague politician Petr Hlubuček (STAN) is one of the accused.
A secondary branch of the case concerns the General Health Insurance Company (VZP) – according to the police, the suspects asked for commissions from companies that supply IT services to the insurance company.
Redl avoided punishment in the fraud case organized by businessman Radovan Krejčíř due to a confirmation of mental illness in the past. Last September, the regional court canceled Redl’s limitation of autonomy. In January of this year, Minister of Justice Pavel Blažek (ODS) said that in the case of the restriction of Redl’s autonomy, an expert and possibly a judge probably committed the crime.
