Janoušek re-enters jail after court health ruling

Influential Czech businessman Roman Janoušek re-entered prison on Thursday after a court ruled that he was well enough to see out the rest of his sentence. He had previously been released while serving a four-and-a-half-year term, for hit and run, after undergoing brain surgery and on the grounds he had an incurable disease.

At one point on Thursday a missing person alert for Mr. Janoušek was issued. However, he later turned up himself at Prague’s Pankrác prison.
