05-12-2013

Police have concluded an investigation into alleged abuse of the country’s Military Intelligence Service. Several people have been charged in connection with the case, including the former chief-of-staff to then-prime minister Petr Nečas and the former and current heads of the Military Intelligence Service. The scandal which brought down the centre-right government centred around the prime minister’s chief of staff Jana Nagyová who is believed to have commissioned the military intelligence service to shadow his wife. The former prime minister and his one-time chief of staff are now married and have refused to testify against each other in the case.
