The Social Democrats have until Thursday to pay CZK 377 million to their former lawyer Zdeněk Altner, his lawyer has told the Czech News Agency. Mr. Altner’s representative collected the court ruling on Monday, a move that made the decision effective. The party has lodged an appeal at the Supreme Court but it does not have the right to suspend the matter. The fine chiefly results from interest accumulated over 16 years on a disputed legal fee related to a case involving the Social Democrats’ headquarters in central Prague. The party says they have an annual budget of CZK 200 million.
