Janiga’s company, Janiga Labs, received a contract for application management and development shortly before Dbalé took over as director of the hospital. According to the indictment, Dbalý then asked Janiga for regular bribes for the fact that the hospital would not terminate the contract. Janiga subsequently handed over 50,000 crowns each to Dbalé and his acquaintance, the head of neurosurgery, František Tovaryš, each month, from the fall of 2006 until January 2010. The total amount of bribes handed over amounted to roughly 4.3 million crowns.
Janiga remained the last defendant in the current part of the case. Originally, the indictment also targeted Dbalé and his deputy Michal Toběrné. However, the court had previously stopped their prosecution as pointless, because they are serving ten and six years in prison after previous convictions. Principal Tovaryš is no longer in the process due to mental illness. The public prosecutor also made a deal with the remaining defendant, Jan Valtr, who is referred to as lobbyist Ivo Rittig’s link: the man confessed to bribery and agreed to a two-million fine, a four-year ban on business management and an obligation to compensate for the damage.
Back in January, Janig’s defense attorneys argued that the client was unable to participate in the main trial. According to the court, which had the man monitored and eavesdropped, but Janiga only simulated the difficulties and, due to his high intelligence, was able to deceive even erudite experts from 2016. On Wednesday, when entering into a plea agreement, the businessman stated when asked by the court that the new doctor changed his medication, after which his health improved.
