Court clears alleged cash van robbers

A court in Prague on Friday cleared two men of robbery charges. The men had been sentenced to 10 and 12 years in jail, respectively, for robbing 154 million crowns from a cash van in Prague in 2002; one of the men was tried in absentia. However, the trial was reopened last year after he was extradited from the Dominican Republic. On Friday, the court said there was no reliable evidence showing the men in fact took part in the crime.
