See also connected question: How anticipated was visit of President of the Czech Senate in Taiwan?
As I am stating there, President of the Czech Senate Jaroslav Kubera was supposed to go on an official state visit to Taiwan this year.
This week (20 January 2020) he suddenly passed away.
Was the death of the Czech President of the Senate a theme in the Taiwanese media?
Do the common citizens of Taiwan know about that?
EDIT (September 2020): The recent events might confuse someone, so I want to clarify: The new president of the Czech Senate (Miloš Vystrčil) fulfilled plans of the late Jaroslav Kubera and actually visited Taiwan. The question remains the same.
