Three of the seven men arrested in central Prague after a waiter was beaten up have been sent back to the Netherlands with suspended jail terms and a five year ban on returning to the Czech Republic.

Two others, including one who is an Amsterdam policeman, were released earlier without charge because they had tried to break up the fight. Two others remain in custody in the Czech capital and could face up to 10 years in jail, according to local media.

The men, who were on a stag weekend, reportedly attacked the waiter after the told them they could not drink their own alcohol on the café terrace. The entire incident was captured on surveillance cameras.
