In a ruling handed down on Tuesday last week, the court ordered Novotny to apologize to Zeman in a handwritten letter within three days of the final verdict. In addition, he must pay compensation of 100,000 crowns and court costs. “An appeal against this judgment is not admissible,” he was quoted as saying iDNES.cz server From the judgment.

If Novotný ignores the ruling, Zeman’s lawyer Marek Nespala is ready to demand it. “We will immediately go the execution route for monetary and non-monetary performance. This means that he can be fined the same amount – that is, up to 100,000 crowns – repeatedly until he apologizes as ordered by the court,” Nezbala said.

Novotny says he will not allow the matter to pass. “I’ll take it, send it to a lawyer to look at it, and then I’ll pay it. What do I have?” Novotny told the newspaper. But he did not regret his words.

According to the newspaper, Okamura filed a suit for personal protection against Novotny. In this case, a decision is still awaited.

Due to his blind statements, Novotny also faces criticism from his fellow party members. The broader ODS leadership, which will meet after the European elections, will consider whether to expel Novotny from the party. The party’s leadership, led by Prime Minister Petr Fiala, had previously decided that Novotný’s statements were unacceptable to humanity and incompatible with membership in the ODS.
