Investigation into spying scandal to be concluded in October

The investigation of the spying scandal that brought down the centre-right government of Petr Nečas should be concluded in the course of October, according to police president Martin Červíček. Mr. Červíček said the case was taking time since there was a large amount of evidence to be analyzed that required assessments by independent experts. Several people have been charged with abuse of office in connection with the case, including the former prime minister’s chief of staff Jana Nagyova who secretly ordered the military intelligence service to shadow his wife. The former and current heads of the military intelligence service have likewise been charged.
