Six men involved in a methanol poisoning case dating back to 2012 have been handed between 5.5 and 8.5 years in prison for their roles. A regional court in Zlín on Wednesday found them guilty of endangering the public, namely for having mixed and helped distribute deadly batches of bootleg liquor. The methanol affair claimed the lives of 47 people. The first poisonings appeared in September 2012, leading the government to temporarily introduce partial prohibition. The two main perpetrators in the affair were handed life sentences in February.
