See the article translated by Doug Arellanes - a Czech man is going to the pokey for criticizing a public official on a chat forum.
A majority of democratic countries have abandoned the practice of punishing speech, especially when it comes to public servants or politicians. Judge Šídlo of course has a different opinion. “Criticism of such people must have its limits,” he explains.

Limits which the judge and his fellow public servants will themselves helpfully define, so other people don't have to worry about such things.
