(Mar 02, 2008) On March 3, 2008, the Olomouc High Court in North Moravia, the Czech Republic, rejected a complaint against Iya Brozova, the Chairwoman of the Czech Supreme Court. The disciplinary complaint, initiated by Justice Minister Jiri Pospisil in December 2007, had alleged that she diverted from the Justice Ministry 40 million crowns (about US$2.4 million) paid as a fine from a financial office. An audit in 2005 had uncovered shortages in the Supreme Court's funds. The High Court decision rejecting the complaint was based on a ruling that the act was not a disciplinary offense.
