(Dutch) Liechtenstein ruziet met Tsjechië over 75 jaar oud decreet (en over gebied 10 keer zo groot als het ministaatje)
Liechtenstein is arguing with Czechia about an area 10 times the size of the principality.
After the Second World War, Edvard Beneš, the president of Czechoslovakia, decided that the Sudeten Germans had to leave the territory because of collaboration with Nazi Germany. The decision also concerned Franz Joseph II, Prince of Liechtenstein. He was considered to be German and lost several estates in nowadays Czechia. These estates amount to a territory about 10 times the size of the principality. Among these estates are the WHS of Lednice and Valtice.
During communism, the claims of the Liechtenstein family were not heard, but after the fall of communism in 1989, an organisation was created to reclaim the lost properties.
The case will now be presented to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
