Czech court cancels fine imposed on police over arrest video

November 2nd, 2017

A Czech court on Thursday abolished the decision by which the Office for Personal Data Protection (UOOU) imposed a 60,000 crown (EUR 2,300) fine on the Interior Ministry for releasing a police video showing how former prime minister's office head Jana Necasova (formerly Nagyova) was arrested. Judge Jan Kratochvil said public interest prevailed over Necasova's right to privacy. The public had the right to see that Necasova was arrested in a lawful manner, which she challenged. "A loss of trust in the police could have had far-reaching consequences for the operation of the state," Kratochvil said.
