Hasenkopf hands over amnesty evidence to Castle

05-05-2013

A former advisor to former president Václav Klaus, Pavel Hasenkopf, said that he handed over evidence of who authored the New Year’s presidential amnesty to the current president’s office. The lawyer, who claimed last week that the Justice Ministry took part in putting the text of the amnesty together, said on the Questions of Václav Moravec Sunday talk show that it is now up to President Miloš Zeman to reveal the true authors of the controversial amnesty. He also wants Mr Zeman’s chancellor, Vratislav Mynář, to apologize for naming him as one of the authors. Former president Klaus told the Právo daily on Saturday that he is the sole author of the text of the amnesty.
