The Krušnohor Apartment and Construction Cooperative is now without any top management. All seven members of the board of the Ústecký Region's biggest housing cooperative have been removed from the Commercial Register by the court.

The High Court in Prague has confirmed that the elections to the cooperative's board in 2016 were invalid because they involved an unlawful procedure. "This scandal began in 2015, when Krušnohor cancelled the membership of roughly 16 000 of the original 23 000 members of the cooperative as well as the mandates of 40 of the delegates who were representing cooperative members during the regular assemblies, delegates who had been elected to a five-year term in 2012 and whose mandates were still valid," reports news server iDNES.cz.

"The cancellation of membership meant that just 34 of the original 80 delegates attended the June assembly three years ago and, according to the statutes, there was no quorum for adopting decisions," the news server reports. Eduard Belšán, Krušnohor's legal representative, said the terminated board members are now considering appealing to the Supreme Court, according to iDNES.cz.

In the past, news server Romea.cz has also reported on the racist speech of some representatives of the cooperative. Its personnel are connected with the political movement "Most Residents for Most", one of whose election slogans in the local elections last year was "We will build a village for the riff-raff".
