Czech entrepreneur Tomáš Pitr, who has been in prison in Switzerland since 2010, has decided to return to the Czech Republic, the daily Mladá fronta dnes reported. The businessman, who has been charged with tax evasion, retracted his application for asylum in Switzerland on Friday and will return to his home country in the coming weeks. According to his lawyer, the decision is partially motivated by personal reasons but also the fact that Mr. Pitr has been reviewing Czech court proceedings in his case and concluded that he will most likely receive a fair trial. He was sentenced to five years in prison by a Prague city court in 2006.
