Poll: less than third of Czechs in favour of returning church property

23-12-2009

Only 31 percent of Czechs believe that the state should return church property confiscated during the communist regime, suggests a new opinion poll just released by the STEM agency. Sixty-eight percent are against a settlement over the property, the poll indicates. Four in every 10 respondents in the survey, which was carried out this month, said they believed the Roman Catholic Church was a ‘useful’ institution.
