Wiretaps played in court reveal Nagyová called ex-PM a primitive

Wiretaps played in court have revealed that the former aide and now wife to ex-prime minister Petr Nečas, Jana Nagyová, called him a primitive and other names, the Czech News Agency reports. In phone calls to a friend, she also referred to Mr Nečas' then wife, Radka, as “a cow” and a “hysterical woman”, criticising her for burdening the then prime minister with family problems. Jana Nagyová had an affair with Mr Nečas when she was still his chief-of-staff; they married after his divorce. She is alleged to have ordered military surveillance of his first wife in order to find compromising material, amounting to abuse of office. The scandal surrounding the former aide helped bring down the former centre-right government.
