All 12 Greenpeace activists involved in climbing a mine tower in a protest against coal mining were released from prison on Tuesday afternoon, on the order of Prosecutor General Jaromír Čižnár. After examining the investigation file, the Prosecutor General's Office concluded that the reasons for custody had not existed at the time the proposal was submitted for their detention. "Custody to prevent escape should not have been ordered. It means that they are being detained unlawfully," said Čižnár.
