Prague mayor seeks go ahead to bury dissected bodies from worldwide exhibition

03-06-2017

The mayor of Prague’s 7 district has written to the Chinese Embassy asking for human bodies which are part of a show, Body The Exhibition, to be buried. The mayor, Jan Čižinský, says the law is clear that human bodies should be buried although these are part of well known exhibition. The embassy has 30 days to reply before the local council takes action, he said. The bodies are currently on show at Prague’s Exhibition Ground. The exhibition, which has travelled worldwide, has previously courted controversy over speculation over the origins of the dissected bodies in China.
