Prime Minister Petr Nečas has strongly criticised steps taken by a group of 27 Czech senators who signed a petition calling for President Václav Klaus to be charged with high treason over a controversial amnesty declared at the beginning of the year, as well as other actions taken, such as having delayed to sign the Lisbon Treaty or failing to appoint new judges. The prime minister said that in his 20 years in politics he had never seen such a base example of personal and political “wretchedness”. The signature of 27 senators was a prerequisite to having the proposal discussed. Pushing it through would require gaining majority support in the upper chamber. The petition has likewise been signed by over 73,000 members of the public.
