‘My Responsibility Is to Our Own Orphans’: Czech PM Rejects Pressure to Import 50 ‘War Children‘

Andrej Babiš has refused to bow to pressure demanding the Czech Republic resettle “war orphans” living in Greek camps, insisting that his responsibility as Prime Minister was to Czech orphans.

In an interview with Právo on Saturday, the Slovak-born businessman restated his position that the nation would not accept a single so-called refugee, nor 50 Syrian orphans as demanded by opposition politicians and MEPs, who spent last week campaigning to bring unaccompanied minors over from Greece to the Czech Republic.

There’s a good chance the “orphans” are 35 year old men.
