The Chamber of Deputies is set to debate on Friday whether to allow the police to press criminal charges against the prime minister and his ANO senior party colleague Jaroslav Faltýnek for the abuse of EU funds in connection with the Stork’s Nest complex, the deputies decided on Wednesday.
The prime minister has consistently denied any wrongdoing and said the affair was intended to force him out of politics. The previous Chamber of Deputies had stripped the pair of their immunity, also on their request, but they regained it with re-election in October.
The parliament’s mandate and immunity committee on Tuesday recommended deputies remove the parliamentary immunity of Mr Babiš and Mr. Faltýnek.
