Nečas to be questioned by police

The police asked former Prime Minister Petr Nečas on Wednesday to come in for questioning this Friday. Mr. Nečas will most likely be questioned in connection with two cases, which the organized crime unit has been investigating: one involves the former prime minister’s chief-of-staff Jana Nagyová who is suspected of using military intelligence resources to spy on Mr. Nečas’s wife. He is also suspected of offering non-monetary bribes to three former MPs, a charge Mr. Nečas has denied. The Olomouc High State Attorney submitted a request to the lower house of parliament earlier this week requesting Petr Nečas to be stripped of his immunity, so he could be charged. The Mandate and Immunity committee of the lower house will begin reviewing the request next week.
