Zeman: Prague district that didn’t prosecute over egg throwing militantly right-wing

President Miloš Zeman says a Prague district that refused to take any legal action after eggs and other objects were thrown at him is militantly right-wing. Speaking on Tuesday, Mr. Zeman said if eggs had been thrown at a right-wing head of state, Prague 2 would have acted differently. The president came under a hail of missiles while speaking at an event in the district marking the 25th anniversary of the start of the Velvet Revolution in November, hours after another protest against him in the centre of the city.
