Separatist Czech leader of Liberland Republic detained by Croatian police

Croatian police detained the Czech Vít Jedlička along with another 10 people on Saturday for illegally crossing the Croat-Serb border, according to local media. He was detained for the same reason and fined a week ago. Jedlička in mid-April declared the autonomous Republic of Liberland on territory between Croatia and Serbia in a move which Czech authorities have distanced themselves from. In the latest incident, Jedlička was apprehended after he crossed the Danube from Serbia and stepped onto Croatian territory.
