Constitutional Court rules in favour of exile who lost Brno property


The Constitutional Court has ruled in favour of a communist-era exile who has been trying to get a house back in the Brno district of Kohoutovice for over two decades. The building was confiscated after Jiří Rábl emigrated illegally in 1981 and later sold to a Communist Party official. A Regional Court in Brno had previously ruled that the property should remain in the hands of its current owner, the Communist’s daughter. The Regional Court must now reconsider the matter.
