Ten Meters From Two Presidents

In Law, Politics on September 10, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , , , , ,

The Czech Constitutional Court celebrated its 15th anniversary. Among the VIP guests were former president Vaclav Havel who in fact nominated the first judges in 1993, and his successor Vaclav Klaus who sometimes says that the court acts like a third chamber of the Czech Parliament [when the judges rule – way too often – that certain laws are unconstitutional…].

It was a nice experience to be about 15 meters [probably a little closer] away from them.
