Presidential candidate Babiš says his wife received anonymous threat

The wife of presidential candidate and ANO party leader Andrej Babiš has received an envelope with a bullet and an anonymous note full of insults, Mr. Babiš announced at a press conference on Saturday.

Mr Babiš said he had contacted the police, who started to investigate the matter. He also said he considered it a threat to his family, which is afraid for its life.

Mr Babiš called on the chairmen of the ruling coalition parties and his rival in the second round, Petr Pavel, whom he repeatedly described as the coalition’s candidate, to urge their supporters not to attack voters of parties with different views.
