Senator Jaromír Štětina criticizes President Klaus

Green Party Senator Jaromír Štětina has called on President Václav Klaus to apologise to the people who are taking efforts to “rid the Czech Republic of the Bolshevik legacy.” Mr. Štětina said the Czech head of state has recently made disgracing comments on these people, referring to President Klaus’ New Year’s address and to a comment he made before Christmas, when he said that the appeals for the abolition of the Communist Party were ridiculous. The spokesman for the Presidential Office Petr Hájek said the president hasn’t read the letter and won’t make any comments on it.
