BBC News - Czech President Vaclav Klaus faces treason charge

The upper house voted to refer the president to the constitutional court to rule on whether he had violated the constitution with a New Year amnesty.

The wide-ranging measures were controversial as they resulted in multiple high-profile corruption cases being suspended.
He gave a wide spread amnesty on existing prisoners, but also halted active prosecutions/investigations going back over 8 years. Which happened to help very rich people who had been indicted for tax fraud.

Now he's on the way to the country's highest court. Not a great way to finish up your term all told...
