      You are right, I am sorry, I somehow confused it with "honorary doctor" and
      similar.

      No, "honorary" is wrong in this case. Here it is short for "The
      Hono(u)rable". For meaning and usage see
      http://en.wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Honourable>
      .org/wiki/The_Honourable

      Hais-Hodek gives the Czech translation as "ctihodny", Right Honourable
      being dvojictihodny
