Hasenkopf to file new lawsuit against Mynář

A fresh row has broken out between President Zeman’s Chancellor Vratislav Mynář and a former lawyer at the Office of the President Pavel Hasenkopf. Hasenkopf, who on Monday accepted a court settlement in a drawn-out-dispute with the Office of the President over the authorship of ex-president Vaclav Klaus’ controversial 2013 amnesty, is said to be incensed by Mr. Mynář’s claim that he had agreed to a settlement because he feared he would lose the case. According to his lawyer Mr. Hasenkopf now intends to sue Chancellor Mynář for slander.
