Prague court refuses to arbitrate boxer shorts case


A Prague court has refused to arbitrate the case against the art group Ztohoven whose members recently replaced the presidential flag over Prague Castle with a gigantic pair of red boxer shorts in protest at Mr. Zeman’s policies and behaviour. The judge sent the case back to the police for further investigation saying there was insufficient proof that the two young men who face charges were responsible for the damage to the roof of Prague Castle and that the overall damage assessment presented was inadequate. The state attorney may appeal the decision.
