Czech court hears challenge of EU reform treaty

The Czech Republic's Constitutional Court is hearing a motion arguing that the EU's proposed reform treaty does not comply the nation's constitution.
Czech President Vaclav Klaus is the last obstacle to the full ratification of the so-called Lisbon Treaty, and is awaiting the court's ruling on the motion brought by Czech senators.
It is not clear when the ruling will be delivered.
Last year the court dismissed a similar complaint against the so-called Lisbon Treaty.
Klaus is also demanding a last-minute opt-out from the treaty's Charter of Fundamental Rights as a condition for signing it.
