Last year, police managed to solve fewer than 20 percent stolen car cases. Concerning murders, the police solved almost all the cases twelve years ago, while only 78 percent in 2007 and just 64 percent in 2006. Jaroslav Ivor, the former head of investigators, says the problem is societal as well as a result of frequent dismissals of police officers. SITA
