to work for 15 years at the Ministry of Interior as a detective in
Commercial Crime Unit. Penta pulled him in and offered him position as
an Asset Protection Manager since he had valuable contacts. Should Penta
plan to do something illegal, Mr. Brychta would advise how to proceed
and how to destroy evidence. Further, his contacts at the highest
floors of the Ministry can steal any dossier and declare it lost.
Vodochody discovered that VP Josef Kadlec was robbing them blind for 15
years, Penta ordered Brychta to act as a handler of Aero Security
Director David Pacola. Mr. Pacola was playing role of a useful idiot.
Should the case leak out, Pacola would be branded as a lone criminal,
who after having discovered the magnitude of the losses, decided to
extort VP Kadlec and the members of his gang. Therefore, Pacola would
go to jail with Kadlec. At the same time, following Brychta's
instructions he would destroy all evidence. Brychta suggested to
Pacola that he should extort Kadlec and the proceeds would be shared.
- Pacola indeed
covered up the case and led police to dead ends whilst destroying
evidence. Although he knew that the hot merchandise was laundered at
one of the gang's member Mr. Zdenek Majtan's company (machine shop) he
didn't report it to the police. With Majtan he negotiated a deal. He
will not talk and one day he will get caught at the gate entering
workplace under the influence and his contract will be terminated.
- With Kadlec he negotiated another deal. Mr. Kadlec would resign without giving a reason. Indeed, Mr. Kadlec left the company.
