Reader feedback: Guilty bosses living free

Re: Deputy minister resigns over spy past, Volume 11, Number 1, January 10 - January 16, 2005

I will say this for Mr Hurný. He is only the bottom of a very long ladder of beasts from that era. The fact that he dobbed on his colleagues for not being 100 percent loyal communists means I would never vote for him or have him represent me, but maybe it is unfair that he suffers when the ŠtB bosses who directed him live as respectable businessmen or retirees. And maybe it is unfair to make them suffer when the Communist Party that directed and used the ŠtB to stay in power also lives well.
