The opposition Public Affairs party has filed a complaint to the Constitutional Court over the restitution of church property, its deputy head said on Friday. The group complains about alleged irregularities in the procedure in the lower house of Parliament, which approved the deal, and other issues. The court received the complaint on December 31, its secretary said.
Last November, the Czech Parliament approved a massive church property restitution deal under which the Roman Catholic Church and other religious group will get back property confiscated by the communist regime worth around 75 billion crowns; they are also set to receive another 59 billion in compensation for property that cannot be returned.
