Czech President Milos Zeman joked about the Saudi consulate

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Czech President Milos Zeman’s latest joke in the worst possible taste at the expense of journalists, delivered to a group of reporters after he gave a speech yesterday, and calls on him to apologize.
“I love journalists, that’s why I may organize a special banquet for them this evening at the Saudi embassy,” Zeman said, alluding to Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi’sdeath at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, which has triggered an international outcry against Saudi Arabia.
Zeman has a long history of bad jokes at the expense of journalists. He greeted journalists with dummy Kalashnikov at a press conference in October 2017. In May 2017, he said journalists should be “liquidated” because “there are too many of them.”
