President's Office: Lawsuit against paper to continue

The lawsuit against the Nový Čas reporter Aleš Krátky will not be dropped and a trial will take place, said Ján Bílek, chief-advisor to President Schuster, June 26. Krátky is being sued for an editorial he wrote which was published in the daily concerning the President's state of the nation speech. In the editorial, Krátky called Schuster an egomaniac incapable of leading a country.

Bílek's statement came in response to a letter sent to the president's office from the International Press Institute (IPI) based in Vienna. The IPI asked President Schuster to drop the charges against Krátky.

"It would be good to let this lawsuit go through," responded Bílek. "Even without a resolute conclusion, it could serve as a warning to others."
