Families must vacate homes after legal defeat

Sixty Czech families must leave their homes within one month after losing a court case. They were clients of a now bankrupt building company called H-System and have now definitively lost a legal battle with the administrator of their properties at Horoměřice near Prague, Josef Monsport.

Mr. Monsport wants their apartments to be sold off to the benefit of other former clients of H-System, which was subject to asset stripping.

Justice Minister Jan Kněžínek said it was not appropriate for him to comment on the Supreme Court’s decision. However, he did highlight the possibility of the clients going to the Constitutional Court. Prime Minister Andrej Babiš described the verdict as unjust.
