Hamáček: Court confirms need for state of emergency

(ČIA) The court decision on the impossibility to use the act on protecting public health instead of the crisis act to limit fundamental rights and freedoms confirms the fact that crisis measures in the fight against the coronavirus can only be adopted during a state of emergency, according to Minister of the Interior Jan Hamáček (ČSSD). ODS chairman Petr Fiala said that the government acted in a confused way and illegally. According to him, people need to have legal certainty and protection in the state of emergency, and therefore it is good that the court has returned them to the people through its decision.
