Czech reporters who follow the trial over Femen activist Angelina Dias inform that she was considered guilty of lunging at Czech president Milos Zeman. The incident took place during the Czech presidential election, at a poll station in Prague on Friday.

On Sunday, the court recognized Dias guilty of committing a hooligan act. Dias will have to serve three months in prison with the probationary period of one year. She will have to leave the country, too; the court banned her from entering the Schengen area for one year. The activist said she considers herself innocent; however, she recognized the verdict.
