Czech Labor and Social Affairs Minister Jaromír Drábek resigned on Wednesday after police charged his first deputy with bribery, another blow to the centre-right government already weakened by corruption scandals in the past year. Police charged Deputy Labor Minister Vladimír Šiška with bribery on Monday. A court ordered on Wednesday his detention until trial. Drábek said he believed Šiška, his former long-term business partner, would be cleared.
