TATIANA Behrová has quit her post as a deputy chair of the Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) after three and a half months. She said that she did not come under pressure to do so, but refused to explain what else might have lain behind her decision.

“I will not comment on the reasons,” said Behrová, as quoted by the SITA newswire, when asked whether she was leaving the post because of quarrels within the management of ÚVO.

Behrová was appointed to the post as an independent expert, saying she planned to pass significant changes to the public procurement rules to make them more transparent. But shortly after taking up her job she received a threatening letter containing a bullet. Though she submitted a criminal complaint to the police, she said that nobody has yet informed her about the results of the investigation.
