PM sceptical regarding compensation for H-system clients

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš has said he is sceptical with regard to the possibility of the state compensating the clients of the bankrupt construction company H-system.

The prime minister commented on the case in a Tweet on Monday, saying that providing such compensation to one group of clients would be unfair to all the others who had lost money in other dubious investments.

Supreme Court Judge Pavel Šámal, who dealt with the case and who came under fire for ordering 60 families of the construction company out of their homes in order to protect the rights of all other clients in the case, said that there was no way to resolve this case which would be fair to everyone and suggested that the state should get involved and provide some form of compensation.
