Czech Republic Senate accepts Nazi crimes against humanity and bill condemning the Armenian Genocide

The Czech Parliament’s Upper Council adopted the bill recognizing the Nazis’ crimes against humanity and the Armenian Genocide that took place in the Ottoman Empire in 1915.

At the same time, the Senate noted that it is unacceptable to kill people on national or religious grounds anywhere in the world.

Decision, II. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of World War II, it was accepted by the proposal of the Vice President of the Senate, Milan Stech, from the Social Democratic Party.

At the same time, the Upper House rejected Senator Thomas Irsa’s proposal from the Civil Democratic Parts, condemning the persecution of Christians in countries where another religion was dominant.

TOR-09’s vice president Thomas Chernin’s proposal to condemn the communist oppression in the former USSR countries also received no support. According to Milan Stiech, these additions are not in line with the concept of the bill.
