The Municipal Court of Brno on Thursday handed down a suspended sentence to a man who physically attacked opposition leader Bohuslav Sobotka, then the deputy chair of the Social Democratic Party, earlier this year. Mr Sobotka suffered a slight spinal injury when he was punched in the face at a pre-election rally by the drunken man, who had moments earlier been applauding his speech. The judge in the trial said it was the first time a public figure had been attacked in such a way in 90 years of Czech history.
