Dutch church leader ordered out by Czechs

The leader of the Dutch Inter-Church Peace Council said Monday he had been ordered out of Czechoslovakia over the weekend, apparently because of his meeting with the banned Charter 77 human rights group.

Mient-Jan Faber, who arrived home Sunday night after being put on a plane by Czechoslovak police, said, ''The authorities there are trying to isolate Charter 77 and doing their utmost to stop members having contact with people abroad.''
