Czech parliament voted Wednesday to cancel a deadline for legislation that enables the return of artworks confiscated from Jews during the Nazi occupation to their original owners. Under the law, claims by original owners or their descendants could be filed only until the end of 2002. An amendment approved by parliament in March 2002 postponed the deadline until the end of 2006. Lawmakers on Wednesday canceled the deadline altogether, with 165 of the 174 lower-house members present voting in favor of the measure. Nine lawmakers abstained, and no one opposed, legislative spokesman Roman Zamboch said.
