Czech tourists detained over false Covid test documents

Some members of a group of Czech tourists who returned from Tunisia have admitted that a Czech doctor there gave them confirmations of a Covid-19 test they had never actually undertaken. The country’s immigration police detained the tourists in passport control for several hours at Prague Airport on Saturday evening.

The minister of foreign affairs, Jakub Kulhánek, said on Monday that he had discussed the matter with the Ministry of the Interior, which oversees the police. He also said that he would ask the Ministry of Health to provide travel agencies with guidelines on testing.
