Zeman must apologise to one-time advisor after losing appeal

Former Czech president Miloš Zeman must apologise to a former advisor of his, Zdeněk Šarapatka. The news site Seznam Zprávy reported on Monday that Mr. Zeman had failed in an appeal to the Supreme Court against an earlier judgement.

Mr. Šarapatka had previously filed an execution petition against Mr. Zeman after he failed to follow a court order to apologise within the set time limit set for falsely claiming that he had fired his one-time adviser for the Office of the Government for incompetence.
