20-11-2011

Defence Minister Alexandr Vondra has criticised the Interior Ministry for its failure to prepare a proposal for the banning of the Communist Party. Mr Vondra told Czech Television on Sunday that he believed the ministry had failed in fulfilling a government resolution. The Interior Ministry was asked by the government to prepare the groundwork for a constitutional lawsuit against the party. The ministry however says it was unable to acquire sufficient material, even with the aid of experts and the intelligence community. The government will be discussing the situation on Wednesday.
