Foreign minister strips Zeman aide of diplomatic passport

The Czech foreign minister, Jakub Kulhánek, has given Martin Nejedlý, a close advisor to President Miloš Zeman, a week to return his diplomatic passport. If he fails to do so, it will become invalid.

Mr. Kulhánek said that it was unlikely that Mr. Nejedlý was using the passport for its original purpose, which was accompanying the head of state on international trips.

Mr. Nejedlý does not have an official position at Prague Castle.
