Zdenek Altner, Czech lawyer, Died at 69


Zdeněk Altner was born in 1947 and died in 2016.

He was a Czech lawyer and advocate.

He was known for filing a suit against the Czech Social Democratic Party (ČSSD) regarding their non-payment of fees owed for services rendered in a dispute over the ownership of the party headquarters in 2001.

He said he should receive 165 million Kč (3.3 million Euros) for the job.

Eventually, his amount of the debt rose to about 19 billion Kč (668 million Euros).

This high penalty was disputed by ČSSD leader Jiří Paroubek, who offered 4.4 million Euros as a settlement.

Zdenek Altner passed away at 69 years old.
