Anti-nuclear protestors demonstrated outside the Czech Government offices with a symbolic execution block on Monday morning. The gesture was in reaction to a promise made last year by the Trade and Industry Minister, Miroslav Gregr, that he would put his head on the block and resign if the Temelin nuclear power plant went any further over budget. Temelin is currently in trial operation. Jan Beranek of the Hnuti Duha environmental protest group accused the minister of massaging figures in order to conceal further expenses of several billion crowns.
