The Prague Municipal Court has ordered a rare painting dating back to 1350, Madona z Veveří, to be returned to the Czech Catholic Church. The verdict upholds an earlier ruling by a Prague 1 court. The National Gallery which currently holds the painting, had refused to give it up on the grounds that the Catholic Church lost it before the onset of the communist regime, so it could not be reclaimed within the church restitution law. The Municipal Court ruled that the state could not lay any claim to the painting.
