Head of Czech Catholic Church calls on Xi to respect human rights
Radio Prague
The head of the Czech Roman Catholic Church, Cardinal Dominik Duka, has called on the Chinese president to respect human rights. At a state dinner in Prague for Xi Jinping on Tuesday night the cardinal – who was a dissident in Communist Czechoslovakia – handed the Chinese leader a letter saying religious freedom for all faiths could not return to his country without a respect for civic and human rights. He also gave Mr. Xi a book on the work of poet and painter Bohuslav Reynek; a recent Reynek exhibition in China was rejected by the Chinese Ministry of Culture due to its religious content, the cardinal said.
