Prague authorities suing food vendors over failure to remove kiosks

The Prague authorities are suing the operators of eight food stands on the city’s Wenceslas Square which have not removed them despite their being forcibly shut down. The city abrogated its contracts with the stands’ operators at the end of last year. One of them continues to sell pizza on the thoroughfare despite the closure order and the imposition of fines. Eighteen of a total of 23 kiosks selling fast food, newspapers and flowers on Wenceslas Square should have disappeared by the beginning of January.
