Czech court imposes first penalty for spreading misinformation: ex-journalist will not escape consequences

The Municipal Court in Prague has imposed the first-ever sentence in the Czech Republic for spreading misinformation about the coronavirus. Former journalist Jana Petrkova must publicly apologize and pay a fine of a quarter of a million CZK (about 10,200 euros) for spreading lies about the death of elderly people after being vaccinated in a nursing home in the village of Mšice in Central Bohemia.

The court’s decision was not yet final, the iROZHLAS.cz portal reported on Friday. “The court prevented her from publishing this information and she has to pay a finesaid Robert Falber, a nursing home attorney.Mrs. Petrkova is obliged to apologize to my client in writing and to publish this apology on social networks and on her website.Valber said.

He added that Petrkova will have to pay court costs in addition to the fine. Petrkova did not appear in court, claiming that she knew nothing of him. He wants to remove the video containing the above allegations from the internet. However, it is planned to defend and take legal action.

The nursing home is suing Petrick for spreading vaccination lies. According to the Manipulátoři.cz server, I posted an interview with Václav Vondráčková, Who claimed that they worked at home and that many elderly people died there after receiving the corona virus vaccine.

The village of Měšice denies this. At the same time, I was informed that Mayor Martin Šaček discovered through the director of the company operating the aforementioned house that Vondráčková had not worked there since May 2020.
