Massive Protest in Prague Calls for Prime Minister Andrej Babis to Resign
(PRAGUE) — The biggest anti-government protest in Prague since the 1989 pro-democratic Velvet Revolution is underway as Czechs urge Prime Minister Andrej Babis to resign.
(布拉格) - 自1989年支持民主的捷克天鹅绒革命民主联盟成立以来，布拉格最大的反政府抗议活动正在进行，捷克总理 Andrej Babis 要求辞职。
Protesters came to the capital from all corners of the Czech Republic to attend Sunday’s demonstration, the most massive of recent street protests opposing Babis.
The demonstrators see the populist billionaire as a threat to democracy, including the independence of the country’s legal system.
The protesters also are demanding the resignation of Babis’ new justice minister. They say the minister might compromise the legal system as prosecutors consider whether to indict Babis on fraud charges involving European Union funds.
抗议者还要求巴比斯的新司法部长辞职。 他们说，在检察官考虑是否以涉及欧盟基金的欺诈指控起诉 Babis 之际，这位部长可能会损害法律体系。
Babis denies wrongdoing and says there’s no reason for him to resign.
