Nagyová questioned for six hours by police

Police questioned Jana Nagyová – the former chief-of-staff to outgoing Prime Minister Petr Nečas – for six hours on Wednesday, her lawyer revealed. The aide, linked romantically to Mr Nečas, has been charged with bribery and abuse of office and is a central figure in the scandal that brought down the government this week. According to her lawyer, Eduard Brun, Ms Nagyová answered questions in detail. Mr Brun said it surfaced during the questioning that his client had not meet with politicians as a state official but as a friend. Ms Nagyová allegedly had the prime minister’s wife and others spied on by military intelligence.
