President will not apologize for vulgar language on radio

President Miloš Zeman sees no reason to apologize for the vulgar language he used in a live interview for Czech Radio on Sunday, his spokesman Jiří Ovčáček told journalists on Tuesday. The president’s use of three extremely vulgar expressions has come under fire from both the public and politicians across the board. The president’s spokesman said Mr. Zeman used the words intentionally to highlight the hypocrisy of his critics and opponents who saw no reason to complain about vulgar language commonly used by some leading Czech politicians.
