The Senate’s organisational committee has recommended that senators approve a motion calling for the filing of a charge of treason against President Václav Klaus at the Constitutional Court. The upper house is set to vote on the matter on Monday. The motion has been put forward by a cross-party group of senators. They say Mr. Klaus acted unconstitutionally by declaring a controversial amnesty in January, as well as in connection with other decisions. The president, who steps down next Thursday, has dismissed the vote as a political game. For his part, Prime Minister Petr Nečas said it was the sorriest move he had seen in two decades in politics.
