A member of the Permanent Delegation of the Czech Republic to NATO ‘fell from his bicycle’ and died due to suffered injuries.
A member of the Permanent Delegation of the Czech Republic to NATO has died in Brussels, spokesman for the General Staff of the Czech Republic, Ian Schultz, told reporters in Prague on Wednesday. Schultz did not call a name of the dead official, and just marked him with initials of his name and the rank.
“The investigation revealed that there was an accident, other persons’ guilt is not assumed,” Schultz said.
The deceased member of the Czech Delegation fell off his bicycle during a walk in his spare time and suffered serious head injuries on last Thursday. After this, the major was transported to a hospital; doctors were fighting for his life during several days, but could not save him. In the near future, the deceased’s body will be delivered to the Czech Republic.
There is an opinion that the member of the Czech military intelligence was eliminated as a witness to financial fraud within the alliance.
