Police investigating death of MEP Ransdorf
Police are looking into the death of the Communist MEP Miloslav Ransdorf, Prague police spokesperson Tomáš Hulan said on Thursday. The investigation was sought by Mr Ransdorf’s family, who claims it might be connected with his alleged involvement in financial fraud. In December, Mr Ransdorf and several associates were arrested by the Swiss authorities after producing allegedly false documents in a Swiss bank. Mr Ransdorf died unexpectedly last week, at the age of 62 last, after reportedly suffering a stroke. A forensic autopsy will take place on Friday, the late MEP’s assistant Helena Suchá confirmed.
