Two film producers have received suspended sentences from a court in Prague for attempting to blackmail producer Deana Jakubiskova-Horvathova by taking a copy of the film Bathory, directed by her husband Juraj Jakubisko. Jan Milic and Karel Lupomesky demanded half a million crowns from the couple for the return of the film after stealing it from an editing suite at Prague’s Barrandov studios. The Jakubiskos, who are Slovak, are now planning to file a civil suit for damages against the blackmailers.
