Zaorálek to discuss acquittal in case involving death of Czech with UK counterpart

The Czech minister of foreign affairs, Lubomír Zaorálek, says he will discuss a court ruling in the UK relating to the death of a Czech citizen with his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, on Wednesday. Earlier he summoned the British ambassador to Prague, Jan Thompson, to discuss the matter. Mr. Zaorálek said he had major doubts regarding the acquittal of a British man who had been accused of beating Czech Zdeněk Makar to death with a bicycle lock in a street attack last September.
