Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek received an anonymous letter Thursday. It authors threatens to kill the PM, iDNES.cz news server wrote.

It is a normal thing, the particular police department that deals with the protection of government officials was notified, the PM says in a press statement.

According to the daily, the sentence that started the whole security procedure was: You son of a bitch, a bullet is waiting for you [rough translation by ed.].

Actual attacks on top Czech politicians do not occur that often. Most commonly MP’s are attacked. One communist party MP was brutally attacked a while ago, and after the attack he had haematoma for a few weeks. Some time in the late 1990’s the late Pavel Dostal [still an MP back then, later he was Culture Minister] was attacked at night in Prague’s underpass and the attackers cut him in the face several times.
