German shot at the iron curtain – the remuneration
"German was shot at the iron curtain – compensation"

"A German man who was shot when he tried to cross the iron curtain at the border between Czechoslovakia and west Germany, will receive financial compensation."

"the Man was 27 years old when he in 1982 tried to cross the border together with a married couple. The pair gave up when the czechoslovak gränssoldater opened fire, but the 27-year-old continued to run and was hit by a bullet in one thigh."

"He brought back to Czechoslovakia, where he was interrogated and received treatment for his gunshot wound. Thereafter, he was extradited to east Germany, where he had to serve a two-year prison sentence. East germany and Czechoslovakia were communist states under soviet influence behind the iron curtain."

"The Czech justice ministry compensates the man with almost the equivalent of 50 000 sek and announces that it is the first time since the fall of the iron curtain that someone will be replaced in this way."

"the Man, who became permanently disabled by the shot, says to the Czech newspaper Dnes that the compensation is not sufficient."
