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.''

Mr. Faber said Czechoslovak secret police were at the airport when he arrived in Prague Friday with four colleagues.
