Press: No charges in Nagyová spying case until January at soonest

Arraignments against the wife of former prime minister Petr Nečas and military intelligence officers she is alleged to have ordered to spy on his former wife will not be ready until January at the earliest, the head of the police’s organised crime unit, Robert Šlachta, told Thursday’s edition of Mladá fronta Dnes. Jana Nečasová (formerly Nagyová) is accused of directing three senior figures in the country’s military intelligence service to monitor Mr. Nečas’s then wife, with the revelations in part leading to his resignation as prime minister. Mr. Šlachta said there had been delays in gathering evidence in the case though he did say that it pointed to a deep-rooted system of clientelism.
