Prime Minister Sobotka's press statement regarding the return of two Czech women abducted in Pakistan

I am very pleased that I can confirm that this morning Hana Humpalová and Antonie Chrástecká, the young women who were abducted in Pakistan two years ago, returned to the Czech Republic. The fact that they are back with their families is thanks to humanitarian activities carried out by the Turkish non-profit organisation IHH - Insani Tardim Vakfi.

On behalf of the families, I would like to ask the media to respect their privacy, and on my own behalf I would like to wish both young women a speedy recovery and a return to regular life as soon as possible.

Bohuslav Sobotka, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
