Vaclav Klaus wore a mask only on his chin on November 17 at the celebration in the center of Prague of the anniversary of the anti-Communist “velvet revolution”.
Former Czech ex-President Vaclav Klaus was fined 3,000 kronor (about $135) for wearing a mask incorrectly. This was reported by iDNES.cz on Monday, December 7.
Klaus wore a mask only on his chin on November 17 at the celebration in the center of Prague of the anniversary of the anti-Communist “velvet revolution”. The police demanded that he cover his mouth and nose with a mask, as required by the rules, but the ex-President did not comply. Klaus was taken to the police station, where a report was drawn up.
In addition to Klaus, ex-head of the Ministry of health Roman Primula and former first Deputy head of the ruling ANO movement Yaroslav Faltynek were also fined 3,000 kronor. They had dinner on October 21 in a restaurant that was not allowed to work in accordance with the emergency regime, and when they left they were without masks. In this form, they were photographed by reporters.
Because of this, Primula was stripped of the post of head of the Ministry of health, and Faltynek was demoted to the post of ordinary Deputy head of the ANO.
Last week, the Czech government significantly relaxed the quarantine regime in the country. In the Republic, the curfew was lifted, which was in effect from 23: 00 to 5: 00. Restaurants, bars, cafes, and other catering establishments, as well as points of sale of non-food products, have also resumed their work.
