Austrian anti-nuke campaigner refused Czech entry

Austria's anti-nuclear campaigner has protested to President Vaclav Havel after being stopped twice from entering the Czech Republic. Mr Josef Puehringer of the "Supra-Party Platform Against Nuclear Danger" said on Tuesday that despite his valid passport and other documents, he was turned back in his car by Czech border guards. Last autumn, Mr Puehringer was repeatedly at the head of demonstrations and blockades of the Austrian-Czech border in protest against the Czech nuclear power station at Temelin.
