"The controversy over whether Václav Klaus committed treason remains unresolved," notes the Czech daily. The Constitutional Court refused, on March 27, to hear the case brought by the Senate against the former president.

In early March, the upper Chamber passed a bill asking the Court to rule on whether or not Klaus had violated the Constitution when he decreed an amnesty that covers many cases of corruption.

On the morning the ruling was due, the paper announced that Klaus was pursuing a European career, and launching an international alliance of Euro-sceptics.
