Former PM Nečas refuses to testify in Nagová case

Former prime minister Petr Nečas was called in for questioning in the case against his former chief-of-staff and now wife Jana Nagyová Nečasová on Thursday morning, but refused to give testimony. Mrs. Nečasová is accused of abuse of power for allegedly ordering the Military Intelligence last year to spy on Mr. Nečas’ then wife Radka. This was one of the scandals that caused the resignation of Mr. Nečas and his government this summer, after Mrs. Nagyová and a number of other high-ranking officials were unexpectedly arrested in June. Mr. Nečas was the last person the police planned to question in the case.
