Czech protest against communist MP appointment as police watchdog chief


(MENAFN) Prague has been flooded with protesters who furiously opposed the selection of a communist-era riot squad officer to become the chief of the Czech parliament's police watchdog.

Demonstrators were reported to have overwhelmed the streets while repeating the phrases "we had enough" and "communists are murderers."

They have also held up sheets of rolled up paper, similar to police batons, representing resentment for the appointment of Czech communist party MP Zdenek Ondracek to become the head of the parliament's general inspection of security forces commission.

Parliament has voted a week ago in favor of appointing Ondracek, not minding vast oppositions against him since he previously served in a unit that attacked pro-democracy protesters during the 1989 Velvet Revolution.
