=======================PRESS DIGEST============================
    CEZ: The chief executive of CEZ          , Daniel Benes,
defended the potential sale of Pocerady coal-fired power plant
in an opinion piece in newspaper Lidove Noviny.
    In it, he said CEZ is not abandoning coal in the future but
wants to focus on refurbished plants like Tusimice, Prunerov and
Ledvice, which have lower emissions. He said CEZ can receive
several billions of crowns for Pocerady.
