The head of the Czech Roman Catholic Church, Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka, has released details of his salary. In his online blog, Cardinal Duka wrote that his monthly gross salary was just over 23,700 crowns, or around 1,180 US dollars. After deducting his monthly expenses including rent, energy bills and others, he is left with around 3,000 crowns that he spends on books, travels, and charity, he wrote. The cardinal’s decision came in response to criticism of a controversial restitution deal under which the Catholic Church is set to receive property confiscated by the Communist regime as well as over 47 billion crowns in compensation for property that cannot be given back.
