New witness in Koristka case confirms bribe attempt

I wish somebody would explain this to me. Ladislav Sommer, a former journalist and author, testified that two guys, one of them a top ODS aide, met in Ostrava's Cafe Bar Paris last year to discuss bribing an MP with CZK 10 million to bring down the government.

Alas, those newshounds at Czech Press Agency have neglected to tell us how Sommer could have possibly known this. Was he waiting tables at the Cafe Bar Paris? Did he just happen to be sitting nearby and he eavesdropped on the conversation?

Details, details.
