Czech president: I cannot accept Martin’s hypocrisy

OUTSPOKEN Czech president Vaclav Klaus branded Foreign Affairs Minister Micheál Martin (pictured) a “hypocrite” last night as a war of words between the two men raged.

The maverick leader’s parting shot at the end of an extraordinary three-day visit was in response to an earlier radio rebuke by Mr Martin in which he attacked eurosceptic comments by Mr Klaus as “ridiculous and inappropriate”.

Mr Martin’s undiplomatic language was initially provoked by the president’s high-profile backing of Libertas chief Declan Ganley, who Mr Klaus compared to a dissident fighting Soviet oppression.
