Milan Kundera defends himself

BBC: Kundera rejects Czech ‘informer’ tag

The Czech Republic’s best-known author, Milan Kundera, has spoken to the media for the first time in 25 years to deny claims he informed on a suspected Western agent in 1950.

The claims, published in the leading news weekly Respekt, were made by a researcher at the country’s Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes.
