Last year, November 10, the lawyer heard the allegations of bribery from police officers from the National Center against Organized Crime (NCOZ). Kremlík spoke about the offer of a bribe for a contract for a toll auditor last year, shortly after his January appeal. He stated at the time that even before Christmas he received an offer of a bribe of 1.5 million crowns from Janoušek, whose law firm represents, for example, the company CGI, which originally won the toll inspection contract. He filed a criminal complaint because of this. According to the information at the time from the SeznamZprávy.cz server, he also stated last February that he had turned to the Security Information Service (BIS) for an offer while still a minister.
Janoušek denies the accusation, according to him it is absurd, unsubstantiated and unsubstantiated and based exclusively on the statements of the former Minister of Transport. He filed a criminal complaint against the ex-minister for defamation, the dispute is also being resolved by the Bar Association, because they are both lawyers, but the attempt at reconciliation failed, writes the ČT server.
The selection of the toll auditor was accompanied by a number of problems, and the course of the public tender in which the Ministry of Transport selected the new toll supervisor was also problematic. The winner was the company CGI, which was a toll controller in previous years. It succeeded with an offer of 210 million crowns in ten years. However, the tender was challenged at the Office for the Protection of Competition (ÚOHS) by Kapsch, which also applied for the position of system auditor. In the summer of 2019, the competition was first canceled by the Antimonopoly Office, but its then chairman Petr Rafaj eventually rejected Kapsch’s objections. Even so, CGI did not eventually become a supervisor.
In February, the new Minister of Transport, Karel Havlíček, canceled the contract shortly after taking office and finally entrusted the control of the toll to the state-owned company Cendis. He justified this by saving tens of millions of crowns.
