The Czech Supreme Court has affirmed a principle of joint responsibility in instances when a group of assailants causes the death of a particular individual, writes Aktualne.cz. The ruling relates to a drawn-out 2007 murder case in which an argument among a group of people led to a fight and subsequent fatal stabbing of one individual. It was not possible to determine who specifically had caused the murder. The case has spent years in the Czech court system. The Brno-based body has now affirmed a previous ruling that all involved parties must pay equal compensation to the victim's family.
