The event called “Merciful Summer” gives people the opportunity to start again without debt to public institutions, some banks have joined. Deprive This can be a debt for rent, for waste collection or just for a black ride. At the beginning of the event, which runs from October 28 to January 28, the municipality called on all city companies to communicate with their debtors. Deputy Mayor for Transport Adam Scheinherr (Prague himself) said at the time that The transport company has over 170,000 such debts and the total amount is over 180 million crowns.
In practice, the whole action contained in the amendment to the law works that just pay the original debt plus a flat fee to the executor, which should be 908 crowns. Therefore, those who have not paid 24 crowns for a ticket and a fine of 1,500 crowns should get rid of the debt if they pay a total of 2,431 crowns.
It’s about millions
However, the case of the executor Juraj P. appeared, who manages debts from Dopravní podnik hl. of the City of Prague (DPP). From the very beginning of the event, he has received criticism from politicians and Daniel Hůle from the non-profit organization People in Need, which offers people help to get rid of debts. He pointed out that you are the executor interpreted the rules as meaning that people should pay double instead of 908 crowns, ie 1815 crowns.
“Executor P. artificially divides the enforced initially granted by the court one statement on 2 separate principals and claims that it is not possible to proceed otherwise. It costs tens of millions of crowns, “He said. In this case, people will pay almost a thousand crowns more. Stick even wrote on Twitter, “He’s a crook.” He told the people from whom the executor recovered twice the fee: “Don’t be screwed up!”
Already at the start of the gracious summer pointed out that there would be a lot of people who didn’t have a chance to understand that this was illegal behavior and would rather pay. The executor’s procedure was also criticized by the councilor of the capital, Hana Kordová Marvanová (STAN).
I’m just keeping the law, they’re defending themselves
However, the executor objected to the criticism and in its statement even called on the transport company to waive part of the claims. He called calls on politicians and Daniel Hůle to give up his practice as “false hypocrisy”. or “evidence striking ignorance of the law”.
“It is not my fault that the legislation was written contrary to the wishes of Mrs. Marvan and Mr. Hůle. I’m just following the law, “Said Podkonický. According to him, the only solution is for the transport company to take a surcharge on the fare.
The transport company, which dealt with bailiffs who recover debts for fares, also objected to this practice. “There is a clear consensus on the legal view that executors will always be charged a flat-rate compensation for execution costs of CZK 908 only once for each individual case“Stands in response to the transport company, which also wants to call on the Bailiffs’ Chamber to take a clear position.
Although she first stated that the rules of the summer of love are written so vaguely in the law that it allows for several comparable interpretations. But she later reported that most of the Twitter interpretation was that “the executor is entitled to 1 flat rate for issuing a resolution on suspension and exemption“.
Daniel Hůle challenged everyone again, he got into such a situation to respond to infoline 770 600 800. The information line at 800 100 000 was also established by the Prague City Hall.
