Prague City Hall has no oversight of ongoing court cases

06-03-2012

An internal audit has found that Prague City Hall loses track of its judicial obligations because there is no oversight of ongoing court cases. The audit was instigated due to several recent situations where city property was nearly seized due to unpaid debts. It found that the records of the city’s ongoing court cases do not show their current status or results, nor is there sufficient control over whether court-ordered obligations are fulfilled or who should be responsible for fulfilling them. In January the city was barred from managing billions of crowns worth of property due to non-payment of a debt of some 200,000 crowns.
