Jiří Felcman will serve 11 years in prison for stabbing a passenger in the Prague subway. His appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court, spokeswoman Gabriela Tomíčková said today when asked by ČTK. The full justification is not yet available on the website. Felcman claimed he was only defending himself from an assault. He faced up to 18 years in prison for attempted murder and disorderly conduct.

The incident took place last January around noon in a subway car while traveling from Prosek station to Střížkov. He had an argument before him. The man, who was unable to defend himself due to drunkenness, was stabbed several times by the attacker with a shooting knife.

At the metro station Střížkov threw him and his bag out of the set and continued to drive on. But Felcman was brought out to Ládví by an employee of the transport company and the police arrested him immediately. Doctors saved the life of the attacked man.

Felcman already stated at the beginning of the main trial that he did not agree with the indictment and that he was only waving the knife around to intimidate the other man. But this was refuted by experts, according to whom the injuries on the victim’s body could not have been caused by accidental washing.

At the Supreme Court of Appeal in Prague, Felcman’s lawyer argued that the conflict was caused by the victim, and also mentioned his criminal past. He proposed a reclassification from murder to assault or attempted murder, but failed.
