30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution

On Friday 15th November  Sir Roger was awarded the Silver Medal by the Senate of the Czech Parliament in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which saw the abolition of the communist system in the former Czechoslovakia and the liberation from totalitarian control of the Czech and Slovak people. The was medal presented by the President of the Senate at a gala dinner in Prague, in the presence of the British Ambassador, and many of those who took part, both in the dissident movements in Czech politics, and in the underground university that was established to offer education to people who had been expelled from the official system. Sir Roger is delighted that the help offered to Czech and Slovak citizens by his fellow countrymen is being recognized in this way, and hopes that the deep sympathies established in those years will remain as influential in European politics as they were in the decade after 1989.
