Kajínek transferred to lower security jailhouse

The country’s most notorious prisoner Jiří Kajínek, who is serving a life sentence for two gangland murders, has been transferred from the maximum-security jailhouse in Mírov to a lower security institution where he will be allowed to work and will gain greater freedom of movement. The transfer was ordered by the regional court in Olomouc. Jiří Kajínek never admitted his guilt and has repeatedly called for a re-trial of the case. He escaped from prison on three occasions. His life story was recently made into a film.
