Mystery Czech returns to get new documents

A mystery Czech who was rescued last December in Oslo suffering memory loss has returned home, according to the Norwegian media. The man, who has been going by the name of ‘John Smith’, allegedly returned to the Czech Republic to apply for new ID and travel documents. He said in the past that he had no intention of returning for good, fearing for his life after his alleged abduction and escape last year. In an interview for Norway’s NRK, he complained there was a campaign against him by some Czech media suggesting he had only faked his memory loss to avoid debts at home.
