From a report:
A video clip showing the Czech Republic’s president pocketing a ceremonial pen encrusted with semi-precious stones while his Chilean counterpart praises him during a Latin American visit.
“All I have to say is, it is not a pen but just a stylus,” Klaus himself said on Tuesday, adding that he takes things all the time.
He said he had a pen from a Nato summit in October and a notepad from the Latvian parliament. “It is what people do regularly. They keep notepads and pens from such events,” he said.
