Drunk-Driving “Mafioso” Lobbyist Roman Janoušek Injures Woman, Flees Crash Scene

Roman Janoušek Infographic

Roman Janoušek’s campaign to become the Czech Republic’s most-hated man is off to a flying start.

Two days after telephone transcripts emerged apparently showing then Prague Mayor Pavel Bém asking the lobbyist for his approval of city property deals, Janoušek allegedly fled the scene after injuring a woman while driving drunk.

Described by Blesk as the “biggest Mafioso in Prague” and, in a banner headline, “Mr. Pig” (steady on!), Janoušek reportedly hit a 51-year-old “foreigner of Asian origin” while driving away from the scene of a prang on Vyskočilova street in Prague 4-Michle on Friday afternoon.

According to Blesk, the 43-year-old multi-millionaire had driven his “luxury Porsche” into the back of the Asian woman’s Volvo then hit her as he drove off. The woman suffered multiple injuries and was later taken to Motol hospital.

The tabloid’s coverage of the incident, which took up the first five pages of its Saturday edition, includes a helpful infographic (pictured above), vaguely reminiscent of Taiwan’s wonderful Apple Daily animations.

Police later apprehended Janoušek, whose nicknames include “Voldemort”, on Pujmanové street in Prague 4-Krč, and after interviewing him for several hours, began criminal proceedings against him and released him.

Janoušek’s current whereabouts are unknown, leading Blesk to speculate that his powerful associates — who also include deputy Czech police president Ladislav Husák and Prague’s deputy chief prosecutor Libor Grygárek — could be conspiring to protect him.

For non-Czech speakers, ČeskéNoviny.cz has an English-language account of the incident, albeit one somewhat less colourful than the Blesk account linked to below.

Parts of Murdered Woman Found in Prague 3 and Prague 4

A severed pair of hands found in Prague 4-Modřany and a human torso found in Prague 3-Žižkov belong to the same woman, according to a police autopsy.

The hands were discovered on Tuesday 6 December in the Kunratický potok woods, not far from the Jižní spojka highway; the torso was uncovered on Saturday 24 December in another wooded area, Lesopark Krejcárek.

According to police spokesman Tomáš Hulan, the cops are still waiting for confirmation from DNA experts that the hands and torso match but are working on the assumption that they belong to a woman who died on Monday 5 December.

It’s thought that the body parts were those of a 40-to-45-year-old blonde or redhead around 170-175 centimetres (5′ 7″-5′ 9″) in height.

The police are treating the case as murder.
