A Prague court of appeals on Thursday ruled to reopen the case of businessman Tomáš Pitr, cancelling a 2006 verdict which sentenced him to five years in prison for tax fraud. Mr Pitr fled the country after the verdict, and was extradited from Switzerland earlier this month. Tomáš Pitr faces charges of tax evasion worth 51 million crowns which he allegedly committed in 1994. The court ruled he should remain in custody pending a new trial.
