Judges and state prosecutors in Prague will lose some of their subsidized apartments. The City Council has decided not to extend the current leases, which are at far below the normal rent rates for the city. The reason is that judges and prosecutors have a salary sufficient enough that they do not need preferential rent. City Councilor Adam Zábranský (Pirates), responsible for housing, said the flats in question are mostly larger ones of a type that is in short supply. The city could use them for socially needy families rather than people with high incomes.
