Czechs protest for fourth week against justice minister

Tens of thousands Czechs are rallying in Prague demanding the resignation of the new justice minister. The protesters say the minister, Marie Benesova, might compromise the legal system at a time when prosecutors have to decide whether to indict Prime Minister Andrej Babis over alleged fraud involving EU funds.

Some person once said "I don't agree with you, but I recognize your right to say it". And that is also my opinion on this. I'm not too familiar with this situation, but here is the probable cause. Said minister is a member of a political party called ANO, and its leader is Andrej Babiš(Just so you know, he is like the Czech Donald Trump, but little more richer). And sometime around 2016-2017 a new political party emerges called "Piráti" (translation: Pirates) and they want to all kinds of things, like legalize marihuana, rely more on the internet so you don't have to wait in line to renew your ID, and just prioritize the younger generation, the millenials. But there is a problem, ANO is the leading party in the parliament, because older people prefer more liberal-conservative goverment. So the Pirates dig up an old "case" and start investigating him, because of something called "Čapí hnízdo" (translation: Storks nest), which is an art sculpture/building built with european grants. That was way before Babiš was a politian. To simplify this, they "snitched" on him, that he pocketed the money (which he didn't). While they do nothing in the goverment and get like $20k a month ( that is alot of money, more that 20x an average pay.) And now they are waiting weather or not she will clear his name or not( Im not sure on the last part ,it is very complicated.
