The manager of a popular café vowed on Thursday to keep controversial portraits of the Czech Republic president and premier painted on the inside of café urinals.
”It’s democracy,” said Radek Helia of the Spolek café, a hangout for artists and bookworms in Brno.
”Everyone can have his own opinion.”
Some customers have been outraged and one lawyer warned of possible criminal charges after an artist decorated urinals with pictures of Premier Stanislav Gross and President Vaclav Klaus, Helia said. — Sapa-DPA
