Police president apologises for police behaviour in Tibetan flag incident

Police President Tomáš Tuhý has sent a letter of apology to the dean of FAMU film academy, Pavel Jech, over an incident in which two police officers inspected a Tibetan flag hoisted at the school during the recent visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping. An internal investigation found that the officers had acted inappropriately in the incident, ignoring security instructions pertaining to the high profile visit. The police president put the mistake down to certain “overzealousness”. The officers may face disciplinary measures over the incident.
