The prime minister’s claim that it was possible to arrange a criminal prosecution against someone has elicited a storm of criticism from the opposition benches.
Deputies accused Prime Minister Babis of undermining trust in the judiciary without having any proof to back his claim and said that if he really believed what he said he should sack Justice Minister Robert Pelikan.
They moreover pointed out that after having spent almost four years in government he should consider himself co-responsible for the state of the country.
Supreme State Attorney Pavel Zeman also issued a strong protest against the prime minister’s claim saying that if the prime minister had any proof to back his statement he should inform him in person.
