Case against suspected weapons dealers stopped under amnesty

In related news, the regional court in Liberec has halted a criminal case against two former managers at Agroplast suspected of illegal arms sales. The case against Petr Pernička and Zbyněk Švejnoha had been underway for more than nine years and came under the recent amnesty declared by the president. The prosecution had claimed the defendants sold weapons without a license between the years 1994 and 1999; had they been found guilty each would have faced up to eight years in prison.
