Museums and monuments protection
On July 10, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed a decree on turning Hagia Sophia into a mosque.
The reason is the fact that one of the judges was recalled.
Ondrej Kolar declared that the monument is the property of the municipality which can dispose of it in accordance with Czech laws.
This was reported by Minister Tomas Petricek.
“We consider unacceptable the persecution of democratically elected representatives of another state for fulfilling their mandate,” Hrib said.
It claims that moving the monument does not violate existing international treaties between the Czech Republic and Russia.
It will become a part of the exposition of the Museum of the 20th Century.
Unknown people broke into the museum on the night.
