Global watchdog says police an
More than one in 10 people around the world paid a bribe in the past year, with police and the judiciary seen pocketing the most illegal money, an international corruption watchdog said on Thursday.

Figures from Berlin-based watchdog Transparency International (TI) showed that Kosovo, Cameroon and Albania were the worst offenders, with around three quarters of respondents surveyed saying they paid a bribe in the past 12 months.

Miloslav Brych is new head of

PRAGUE- Miloslav Brych, head of the Central Bohemian police's economic crime department, has been appointed the new head of the anti-corruption squad by police deputy president Jaroslav Machane today, the Police Presidium said.
Brych, 42, has been working with the police since 1983.

Former head of the anti-corruption squad Jiri Palka and his deputy Josef Becvar were dismissed after the escape of prosecuted businessman Radovan Krejcir during the search of his villa in June. The Krejcir case also brought about the fall of police chief Jiri Kolar.

Until now, the unit was headed by Palka's deputy Milan Siska.

Police President Vladislav Husak had announced a tender for the post but none of the seven candidates, including Siska, succeeded in it. Husak said that Siska will continue to be the squad's deputy head.

The anti-corruption police deals with the most serious cases of corruption, such as the extensive corruption scandal in Czech soccer and the alleged attempt by the opposition to bribe deputy Zdenek Koriska (junior ruling Freedom Union, US-DEU) to bring about the fall of the new government.

It has been recently speculated that as a part of the planned police reform Husak will merge the anti-corruption squad with the financial police, specialising in investigations in tax evasions, frauds and money laundering.
