Policemen punished over photos with killer Kajínek


Three police officers in Ostrava who had their photos taken with the convicted murderer Jiří Kajínek have been punished. However, the police do not reveal the specific sanctions involved in such disciplinary cases. In spring the policemen’s superiors condemned the three, saying their action had threatened the honour of the profession.

The three posted on social media pictures of themselves with Kajínek, who has become something of a celebrity with a certain segment of the Czech population since being pardoned by President Miloš Zeman.
