Police press charges over underpants art activists

Police have charged three of the art activists from the group Ztohoven who hauled down the Czech president’s standard at Prague Castle and replaced it with a large pair of red underpants in September last year, the daily Právo reported Thursday. The three have been charged with causing public disorder, theft, and damage to property. They could face up to three years in prison. The case was returned to the police after a judge refused to deal with it under a fast track procedure.
