Jaroslav Kubera for the first time as President of the Senate awards 12 recipients Silver Commemoration Medals

On 27 September 2019, on the eve of Czech Statehood Day, the traditional awarding of Senate Silver Commemoration Medals took place in Wallenstein Palace’s Main Hall. During the ceremony, the president of the Parliament’s upper chamber, Jaroslav Kubera, handed out awards to 12 exceptional figures of Czech public life, including on the basis of nominations from other senators.

“It wasn’t easy to choose from such a large number of incredible people. In my final selection, I took particular account of the fact that in a few short days we are commemorating the 30th anniversary of the November events that led here to the collapse of the communist regime and the return of democracy and the market economy,” explains Jaroslav Kubera.
