Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, there have been Czech politicians supportive of the idea of abolishing the Benes decrees if the German government were to pass a law that would give up all rights to compensation. The compromise would be reasonable but a combination of nationalist ressentiment in both countries, and the German courts' rulings that such a move by the federal government would make it liable for compensation claims have blocked any resolution.
