As we previously reported, the Sokols received documents related to completed loan agreements from Komerzini Bank, thanks to Eliska C. – former mayor Hana Maukowa's assistant – according to the investigation so far, embezzled 36 million kroner from the loans issued. A further ten million was to be withdrawn directly from Sokol bank accounts.

After the police became interested in the case, according to the Sokol administration, the assistant committed suicide.

Where did the money go?

According to the authorized head of Česká obce Sokolská (ČOS), vice president Martin Chlumský, the stolen money did not come from any subsidies. According to the Falcons' investigation to date, there are three sources:

  • Credit and Overdraft Agreements: Assistant Eliška C. is to receive most of the money from three completed loan agreements totaling 36 million crowns including interest.
  • Down payment for renting Tyrš's house: Eliska C. He also withdrew about 3.5 million kroner from the primary account for Tyres' house rent.
  • Budget balance: The assistant also stole about 6 million crowns from the ČOS budget balance account.

“One of the most basic findings was that the completed loan agreements were digitally signed using the bank identity of two former legal representatives,” said former mayor Hana Maukova and former executive Joseph Teshidel – both of whom resigned from their positions. Posts as a result of publication of the case. However, according to Sokol management, how they signed the contract is still under investigation.

According to Chlumský, Sokol has already prepared a legal analysis of how he would proceed in this matter. According to the new mayor, the contracts were not concluded in a consistent way — he did not elaborate on what that meant.

But the Falcons will try to get the money back. “We need to recover compensation for the damage they have caused us (Moučkov and Těšitel, editor's note) created,” he asserted.

Vice Mayor Kamila Srolerova said the municipality plans to recover the damage caused in the civil proceedings and that it must do so because it respects federal law and the principle of good stewardship. She had already informed Moučková and Těšitele about her intention. “They believe in this opportunity. It's a standard thing in federal law,” Chlumsky pointed out.

The Sokolovs have applied for probate proceedings after the deceased assistant. Police seized part of his property, and police spokesman John Tanek said if it is proven that the property was the result of criminal activity, the proceeds from its sale could be used to offset the damages.

“We are also preparing for it and analyzing it. But it is still not clear what is the estate of the late Eliska C., so we have to wait for specific information first before we take further action,” Deputy Mayor Srolerova added.

We do not sell properties

According to the current administration of Sokol, the former mayor Moučková's assistant should have concluded a total of three contracts – two loan contracts for 15 and 12 million crowns and one overdraft contract for 5 million crowns. In total, including interest, it is 36 million crowns without interest, which forms the basis of the embezzled money.

As stated in the laws of the municipality of Sokol, the contracts are valid according to the bank, as they are digitally signed by the legal members of the association. Sokol must pay them back.

“We have approached the budget in such a way that the operations of the districts and units are affected as little as possible,” assured Martin Vlk, head of the budget commission.

The Falcons want to sign a second loan deal for 15 million kroner spread over time through an installment plan. “We are discussing this with the bank,” Chlumsky added.

The village administration had also earlier refused to sell the property. “We certainly do not want to sell the property in connection with this case. I do not rule out that we may rent out part of the property in the future, but it will not be a result of this case,” added Chlumský for iROZHLAS.cz and Radiožurnál.

More than two months have passed since the start of a fraud investigation in the Czech municipality of Sokolska, where the mayor's assistant took 46 million crowns from the union. The police investigation is still ongoing, and criminal investigators would not comment on whether they suspect anyone other than the accomplice in the case. However, they have not yet ruled out the participation of potential partners.
