  1. I just read it on iDnes. How sad. At least he died happy…

  2. In fact, he did not manage to reach the site of the party where he was intending to go to. He died quite near from the place he was going to meet his friends he phoned earlier that day, according to Blesk daily tabloid newspaper.

  3. Thanks, Mr Bokuvka for the prompt and knowing reply.

    Let’s hope the project cherished by Jan Kaplicky will see the light one day.
