In 2012, a court in Ostrava found that Wolf had defrauded the Ministry of the Environment, claiming that he had received subsidies based on false and misleading information. Between 2005 and 2007, he and his wife drew 11 million crowns for two projects.
He used part of the money for his own expenses, and plans were copied from the Internet. The court sentenced Wolf to five years in prison and a fine of one million crowns. The High Court in Olomouc increased Wolf’s sentence to six years and a fine of five million crowns.
A European arrest warrant was issued for Wolff in February 2013, and an international arrest warrant was issued in April. Wolf’s wife was given a three-year suspended sentence and a fine of one million crowns. He and his wife paid the fine in installments. Even when he was already absconding, money was coming into the court account. They were paid by the refugee’s wife.

He was an MP till 2010. Already in October 2009, the police asked the House of Representatives to extradite Wolff for trial on suspicion of loan fraud and copyright infringement.
