Ambassador visits Transylvania

On July 27 2013, Ambassador Jiří Šitler visited the prison Aiud in the County of Alba, where he recalled destinies of political prisoners of the communist regime.

Ambassador participated in a program organized by the Rescue humanitarian foundation in the prison Aiud. He had an opportunity to talk to inmates and be informed in detail about living conditions of inmates in this maximum security prison, inlcuding the visit of prison cells, working and free-time facilities. Within the prison he also visited a commemorative cell, where he recalled destinies of thousands of political prisoners of the communist regime, who suffered here and many of them also died.

On the same day Ambassador had talks in the Prefecture and the County Council in the city of Cluj on cooperation between the Czech Republic and the county, for which the launch of a direct flight connection between Cluj and Prague by TAROM could be an important impulse.
