Lower house to honour George Brady on Thursday
The Chamber of Deputies will honour George Brady at a ceremonial gathering on Thursday morning. Mr. Brady is to receive a commemorative medal and a commemorative certificate, the speaker of the lower house, Jan Hamáček, told the Czech News Agency. The president’s office is accused of removing Mr. Brady from a list of recipients of state honours on October 28 after his nephew, arts minister Daniel Herman, received the Dalai Lama. The idea of honouring the 88-year-old Holocaust survivor was put forward at the weekend by Civic Democrat MP Miroslava Němcová after the scandal broke. The president’s office denies any wrongdoing.
