PRAGUE - Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas survived a vote of no confidence on Thursday after coming under sharp attack for an amnesty that halted investigations of dozens of financial crimes.

The amnesty, granted by President Vaclav Klaus and countersigned by Necas, outraged many Czechs who believe politicians and their friends are able to evade justice.

Amnesties are among the limited powers of Czech presidents. This one, announced on January 1, was Klaus's first, and came just before the end of his second and final five-year term in March.
