11:25 Navrtilov slams Australian Open for protest restrictions in China

The great Czech tennis player Martina Navrtilov has criticized the Australian Open organizers for preventing fans from wearing shirts expressing support for Chinese doubles player Peng Shuai, whose absence from public view after accusing a former Chinese vice premier of sexual assault has raised concerns. Shuai has since reappeared, but concerns over her well-being remain. Navrtilov said, “I find that really, really cowardly. I think they’re wrong about that. It’s not a political statement, it’s a statement of human rights.” A video showed security officials asking people to remove shirts with the slogan “Where is Peng Shuai?”, on the grounds that political statements are not allowed at the competition.

China A nude statue of Xi Jinping is paraded during a protest at the Chinese Embassy

The Czech-based Kaputin activist group staged a protest against China’s authoritarian regime yesterday outside the Chinese Embassy in Prague. A police spokesman said authorities were not told the event would take place, but it went ahead without any problems.

Activists paraded a naked statue of Chinese President Xi Jinping outside the embassy with nooses in the shape and color of the five Olympic rings.

criminality Murder in Mlnk after partner cut off man’s penis

Mlnk police are investigating a gruesome murder in which the victim’s penis was cut off. Locals claim the man was killed by his partner; police have already arrested one person in connection with the case. Police arrived at the scene of the crime around 3:00 p.m. yesterday. An autopsy has been ordered, the results of which should be available to police on Monday. The events leading up to the murder are not yet known.

Most similar cases of brutality recorded by the police are motivated by the infidelity of a partner. A young woman cut off her partner’s penis in Brazil last summer following an argument; in this case too, the man did not survive. Similar cases have also been seen in recent years in Pakistan and India.

Jewish history Czech Torah goes on display in Florida

A Czech Torah scroll that took part in the country’s dramatic 20th-century history will be on display at the Jewish Museum of Florida. The Torah was donated to Florida International University over a decade ago and has been described by the museum director as illustrating an important story in Jewish history.

The Torah was one of more than 1,500 sent to the Jewish Museum in Prague in 1942 for safekeeping after Czech synagogues were looted under the Nazi regime. In the early 1960s, the scroll was purchased by a British philanthropist and donated to the Westminster Synagogue in London, where the Memorial Scrolls Trust was established, loaning Torahs to synagogues and other organizations around the world. The Torah Now in Florida is believed to have been written around 1850 and was originally housed in the Klausen Prague Synagogue in the Josefov district of Prague.

Politics Castle demands apology for allegations regarding Zeman’s health

Psychiatrist and former human rights minister Damila Stehlkov claimed on her Twitter profile that the Czech president’s office demanded an apology and compensation of CZK 1 million for previous statements regarding Milo Zemans’ health issues. Stehlkov claimed that the president’s health problems were related to alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.

Stehlkov compared his treatment to that of whistleblowers in authoritarian regimes, suggesting that Castles’ response indicates that the Czech Republic is not on the western liberal path. How much is the truth about the president worth? In the West, this could lead to the abdication of the president; in Belarus or Russia, a citizen can pay with his life or be imprisoned. In the Czech Republic, you pay one million crowns. And an apology, she said.
