A court in Prague on Friday cancelled last year’s dismissal of Daniel Herman as the director of the Czech Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes. Mr Herman, who now serves as the Czech minister of culture, said he welcomed the verdict. The institute’s board dismissed Daniel Herman last April over what his opponents saw as a series of mistakes; however, Mr Herman said the move was politically motivated. A new director of the institute, which administers the files of the former Communist secret police, was appointed last month.
