Prague City Court on Monday dealt a three-year prison sentence to controversial entrepreneur Tomáš Pitr for embezzlement as well as tax fraud. Security during the trial was heightened; the defendant wore a bullet-proof vest for the duration of the trial. Mr Pitr has already served two years in prison; other cases of tax fraud that he is suspected of will be the subject of a new trial that is set to open soon. In 2006, Mr Pitr was sentenced to five years in prison for tax fraud. He fled the country in 2007 and was extradited back to the Czech Republic from Switzerland in April.
