State attorney files objection over handling of military spying case

The Olomouc supreme state attorney’s office has filed an objection over a case involving the abuse of the military intelligence service. It contends that a suspended sentence handed to Jana Nagyová for ordering intelligence officers to spy on the now former wife of Petr Nečas – who was then prime minister and Ms. Nagyová's boss and is today her husband – was excessively lenient. The state attorney’s office also objects to the dropping of charges against another defendant. The arrest of Ms. Nagyová was one factor in the fall of Mr. Nečas’s centre-right government in June last year.
