Zeman asks for protective detail for his daughter

President-elect Miloš Zeman has asked the Czech police to place a protective detail on his nineteen-year-old daughter Kateřina. She was a highly visible member of Mr Zeman’s campaign, which is why police president’s deputy has said that giving Ms Zemanová police protection is warranted. The final decision will be made by the Interior Minister Jan Kubice, once the proposal is assessed. Mr Zeman was given a state security detail already on Saturday after being confirmed as the winner in the presidential elections, but has so far also commissioned a private security company to protect him.
