This is not true. It’s fabrication by EuropeanVoice, namely Simon Taylor, which spreads into Western Europe media. The truth is that Lisbon Treaty is refered to the Constitutional Court by the group of the Senators without any involvement by Václav Klaus.
The Western journalists stupidly consider Václav Klaus to be the demiurge of anything what happens in the Czech Republic. The fact that some senators are in accord with Klaus doesn’t mean that they are Klaus’ puppets, the fact that Klaus was in disaccord with Topolánek doesn’t mean that Klaus was involved in the fall of Topolánek’s government and so on.
Thank you. Why to I fall into my own trap and believe anything the MSM says?
I wrote to President Klaus last month asking him to withhold his signature until next year and I received a reply within 2 weeks (a quicker response than my MP).
Here's part of what he said, dated 26th June:
"...in the coming weeks a group of senators is going to refer the Treaty to the Constitutional Court with specific questions on the compliance of the Treaty with the Czech Constitution. I will be the last one to decide on the [Czech] ratification of the Lisbon Treaty.
I closely follow the situation in your country and know about the promise made by the Conservative Party to hold a referendum...I am aware that withholding my signature would be one, and eventually last, chance for them to keep this promise.
[The Treaty] certainly does not add to the Union's democratic legitimacy from the citizen's point of view, and I think that in case the ratification goes that far [i.e. signed by the Polish President, a yes vote in second Irish referendum, and approved by German Constitutional Court] the people of the UK should have their say on the Treaty.”
