The opposition centre-right parties TOP 09 and the Civic Democrats say they are outraged by the prime ministers stance and are demanding a special session of Parliament to “restore the dignity of the Czech Republic and defend its reputation as a country which respects freedom, democracy and international law". TOP 09 deputy chair Miroslav Kalousek described the prime minister’s stand as “short-sighted, alibistic and cowardly”. Mr. Sobotka has also come under fire from Czech MEPs.
