Miloslav Ransdorf (15 February 1953 – 22 January 2016) was a Czech politician and Member of the European Parliament for the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia; part of the European United Left–Nordic Green Left party group in the European Parliament. He died in office at Prague in 2016.
In 2013, Ransdorf was videotaped by Dutch newsblog Geenstijl, checking in at the European Parliament to claim 304 euro daily expenses fee and immediately leaving. When confronted, Ransdorf became aggressive and assaulted the reporter by attempting to push his microphone out of the way.
In 2015, Ransdorf was detained in Switzerland with three men from Slovakia in Zurich after trying to withdraw 350 million euros at a Swiss bank Zurich Cantonal Bank with false IDs.
Ransdorf was involved in four car accidents, which led to speculation about drunk driving.
