Former Zeman ally pulls plug on Zemanites’ website

The website of the Citizens’ Rights Party-Zemanites has disappeared from the internet, the news site reported. The owner of its domain names, Miroslav Šlouf, shut down the site; he said he was angered that pornographic images had appeared on it recently, when it was evidently the victim of hackers. Mr. Šlouf, a well-connected political strategist, was prevented from standing in Prague by the Zemanites’ leadership. He was a long-term political ally of the party’s Miloš Zeman but the two fell out following the latter’s election as president.
