Kajínek files complaint with Constitutional Court

Jiří Kajínek, called the country’s most famous prisoner, continues to seek a retrial in the case that left him with a life sentence for two planned murders and one attempted murder. The daily Právo reports that Kajínek filed a complaint with the Constitutional Court this week against judges in Plzeň and Prague who rejected his second petition for a retrial. The complaint reads that he did not receive a fair trial, arguing primarily that police investigators at the 1993 crime scene did not dust for fingerprints. Jiří Kajínek has maintained his innocence in the double murder since the beginning and escaped from prison on three occasions. He was recently the subject of a major film that renewed questions around his guilt.
