Longtime politician Karel Schwarzenberg (TOP 09), who has been struggling with health problems since the end of the summer, was flown to a Vienna hospital.
According to the politician’s entourage, however, this is not an urgent transfer. Schwarzenberg’s health, on the other hand, has improved compared to last week.
“It is a planned stay, which also includes rehabilitation. It is about Vienna so that Mr. Schwarzenberg can be closer to his family,” Schwarzeberg’s colleague Filip Štědrý told Nauzal.
The Expres server was the first to report the news of Schwarzenberg’s transfer, describing it as “sudden”. The server also quoted Schwarzenberg himself as saying, “I was flown in to make it faster and I’ll be here in the hospital.”
The former foreign minister and honorary chairman of TOP 09 had to be hospitalized repeatedly due to unspecified health problems. But he communicated with journalists during his stay in the hospital – the last time he commented on the sentence against former TOP 09 MP Dominik Feri last week.
On October 28, Schwarzenberg did not take part in the state honors ceremony, when Petr Pavel awarded him the Order of the White Lion. His son Jan took over the highest domestic order for him.
