Lawyer: Wife of outgoing PM refusing to speak to police about alleged surveillance

Radka Nečasová, the wife of the outgoing Czech prime minister, Petr Nečas, has refused to answer police questions linked to alleged illegal surveillance of her by the Military Intelligence. The information comes from the lawyer of Jana Nagyová, who is a former close aide of Mr. Nečas and is in custody on charges of ordering the spying and other crimes. The police say Ms. Nagyová, who has been romantically linked to the outgoing PM, had the surveillance carried out for purely personal reasons. The affair led to Mr. Nečas’s resignation after three years as head of government.
