Mandate and Immunity Committee meeting cut short

A meeting of the parliamentary Mandate and Immunity Committee on Tuesday was cut short after two hours due to the plenum of the Chamber of Deputies, failing to move forward on a police application for immunity of ANO leader Andrej Babiš and deputy party leader Jaroslav Faltýnek to be lifted so they can face fraud charges.

Committee member Helena Válková confirmed no progress had been made, while the newly elected head of the committee, Communist deputy Stanislav Grospič, said the body would return to the issue later in the day.
