Czechia compensates East German wounded on run to West

February 7th, 2019

Siegfried Frobel, severely wounded when attempting to escape to West Germany from Czechoslovakia in 1982, is the former Communist East Germany's first citizen to receive damages from the Czech Justice Ministry for injuries suffered when crossing the border, Mlada fronta Dnes said (MfD) today. Frobel, now 63, was shot in the leg by the border guards who captured him 37 years ago and remained disabled. He will now receive the total of 125,825 crowns in damages which he plans to donate to a charity helping ill children. His lawyer Lubomir Muller said that the Justice Ministry's decision was groundbreaking but criticised the damages level as it was calculated in 1990 and had not been adjusted since.
