Prague, Sept 29 (CTK) – The Prague Municipal Court cancelled the fine that the Office for Personal Data Protection (UOOU) imposed on the Prague High State Attorney’s Office for releasing the salaries of its employees and the UOOU will have to deal with the case again, the court has informed on its website.

The court’s verdict was issued on Tuesday and it has taken effect. The court has not released the reasoning of the verdict on its website.

Prague High State Attorney Lenka Bradacova released the pay of all the employees on the office’s website in February 2013. She said she acted in accordance with a Supreme Administrative Court (NSS) ruling from 2011 when she met a request calling on her to release the salaries.

Under the NSS ruling, offices are obliged to provide information about the pay and bonuses of state administration employees.

In April 2013, the UOOU ruled that Bradacova violated law and it fined her office 100,000 crowns. The UOOU said the office did not have the right to release the salaries and names of the junior clerks along with those of state attorneys.

In the case of the junior clerks, the offices should consider whether the need of the data disclosure prevails over the employees’ right to have the data about their income protected, the UOOU said then.

The Supreme State Attorney’s Office released information about its employees’ pay on its website as well, but it only presented the salaries for the respective positions without linking them to concrete names.
