Did Czech leader Vaclav Klaus pocket the silver pen that the Chilean government had provided for him to sign cooperation treaties between the two nations? You be the judge.
The Czech leader can be seen opening the case and admiring the pen, before hiding it under the table, and presumably putting it in his pocket.
Then, he casually closes the box, and gives an inconspicuous nod to the camera.
Since the video was published, the spokesperson for the Czech presidency has said the pen was a gift, and thus the president didn’t steal it, but just “put it away.”
