On learning of allegation of sexual abuse against Czech priest František Merta, Graubner transferred the priest to another parish but did not report the matter to the police. A student of Palacký University of Olomouc Saints Cyril and Methodius Faculty of Theology subsequently laid criminal charges against both Merta and Graubner.
