A man released under an amnesty at the start of the year has been given a 12-year jail term for the murder of a homeless Slovak man in Prague. The court heard how Miloš Svozil stabbed his victim to death after getting in a dispute with him and a group of other homeless people in the city’s Podolí district in February. Some 6,500 prisoners were released under a controversial amnesty announced on New Year’s Day by Václav Klaus, shortly before he stood down as president.
