Christian Democrat leader to meet with US ambassador over US report

The leader of the Christian Democrats Jiří Čunek is to meet with US Ambassador to Prague Richard Graber in the coming days to discuss the US State Department’s annual report on human rights released earlier this week. The report specifically mentioned Mr Čunek in his approach to the Roma minority when he was the mayor of Vsetín several years ago, as well as a corruption case he was linked to last year. US Ambassador Graber responded to a letter sent by Mr Čunek - in which the Czech politician pointed to alleged inaccuracies in the US report; an exact date for the officials’ meeting has not yet been set.
