Criminal liability due to measures taken by the Ministry of Health may be in place, says lawyer and former Minister of the Interior Tomáš Sokol. According to him, the state could have committed a crime. At the same time, it is said that people are not obliged to prove themselves with tests or vaccinations. It is mainly about how the measures and the pandemic law are written and justified.
Sokol has changed his mind over whether anti-epidemic prosecutions are in place in the last two weeks. It turned out that the state may have known that the measures were illegal and did not act in good faith. Who is exactly to blame, but it is not clear. It can be the government, the ministry or officials. According to Sokol, the Supreme Administrative Court has repeatedly pointed out that the situation is exceptional, but the state had plenty of time to prepare adequate laws.
Lawsuits against the state for damages may not succeed, it will be very complicated, Sokol describes. The problem is mainly in proving damage. The Ministry of the Interior is said to defend itself, among other things, by the fact that the covid can simply be responsible for the damage, not the state, which is unacceptable, according to Sokol. In the interview, the lawyer explains the causes of the state’s legal problems and the consequences that this may have.
Sokol also sees problems in the obligation to document tests or vaccinations. According to him, citizens do not have this obligation now, and there is no one to enforce it. It can’t be hygiene or the police, Sokol explains why. However, this does not generally mean that such an obligation cannot arise. According to Sokol, there is such a possibility, including, for example, a conditional departure from the republic.
