Fight against Corruption

"Corruption can be described as a relationship between two entities, whether individuals or institutions, of which one offers, and usually also provides, a certain reward for the provision or promise of an unfair advantage. The other then expects to receive the promised reward, whether pecuniary or non-pecuniary, for the advantage so provided."

Reporting of illegal acting

CTU is implementing both Government Order No.145/2015 Coll., on measures related to reporting  possible illegal activities in a public service authority (so called "whistleblowing") and the as yet untransposed Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law.

CTU has established an internal notification system and ensured the following organisational measures related to the above-mentioned legislation.

The CTU Council Chair has authorised a civil servant to receive and inspect reports on suspicions (inspector). The duties of the inspector and authorised person is performed by Mgr. Šárka Němečková, director of Legislation and Legal Affairs Department (tel.: 224 004 620, e-mail: Her deputy is Mgr. Marek Beran, head of Legislation Unit (tel.: 224 004 724, e-mail:

Reports can also be sent by electronic mail to or orally to the inspector/authorised person.

At the same time a letterbox has been installed to receive reports in paper form. The reports can be inserted in the letterbox which is marked “Oznámení o protiprávním jednání”. The letterbox is dedicated only for the receipt of reports on illegal activities at the CTU premises according to the Government Order No.145/2015 Coll. and Directive (EU) 2019/1937 and is placed on the CTU premises (Sokolovská 219, Prague 9), approx. 3 meters from the entrance to the building in Bratří Dohalských street. The place ensures minimum possibility of disclosing the identity of the reporting person. 

The letterbox and e-mail is checked on daily basis.
