The Czech government on Wednesday rejected bills on referendum and the legalization of prostitution. The minister for human rights and equal opportunities, Jiří Dienstbier said the proposal to legalize prostitution, as put forth by Prague City Hall, contradicted the country’s international obligations. The bill on referendum, proposed by the opposition Dawn party, meanwhile, was rejected as it could undermine the Czech constitutional system, Mr Dienstbier said.
