Zeman and Duka discuss restitution of properties on Castle tour

President Miloš Zeman has discussed the restitution of properties at Prague Castle with the leader of the Czech Roman Catholic Church, Cardinal Dominik Duka. The two men toured the properties in question together on Wednesday, the president’s spokesperson said. Teams representing both sides will discuss the issue in the New Year with a view to producing a deal by the end of 2014. The Catholic Church is seeking the return of some of its properties at the Castle under long-discussed and divisive restitution legislation approved last year.
