Finally, we learned that the “state considers the system of government-approved individual aid instruments to be “the most important element in compensating for material damage, not only in the business sector. On the other hand, the provisions of Section 36 of the Crisis Act cannot be used for this purpose, as this is a special and narrowly focused regulation of the liability relationship.”
In other words, the state told us that whether you are a tour operator or an travel agency, whether you are dealing with incoming or outgoing, children or seniors, whether you are a restaurant on the Old Town Square or at the end of the world, it doesn't matter. No one gets anything because the crisis law did not even presumed force majeure in the form of the coronavirus epidemic. One could, of course, ask himself what the state thought about when creating the Crisis Act.
Clients and we are now putting together a plan for the next move. There is, of course, a legal instrument in the form of the lawsuit, which we have all, though reluctantly, been counting on from the beginning. Perhaps none of our clients is satisfied with the compensation in the form of subsidy programs or "government-approved individual assistance instruments". After all, many clients did not reach for these tools at all.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, do not hesitate to contact us to coordinate the next step.
