Czech police to toughen measure against tourists in Brdy

19-05-2008

The Czech military police who have been monitoring the ongoing Greenpeace protests in the Brdy military area against the US radar base which is to be stationed there will apply stricter measures against tourists entering the area. More and more tourists enter the zone without permission, often ending up at the military grounds prohibited for civilians. A person violating the ban of entry without a permit can face a fine of up to 3,000 crowns. Two weeks ago, around 20 Greenpeace activists set up a camp in a clearing called Site 718, the spot chosen by officials from the U.S. Missile Defence Agency for the radar facility.
