Former prime minister’s aide-turned-wife is slapped with 12-month suspended sentence for abuse of intelligence services

Prague, June 30 (ČTK) — The Prague 1 district court Friday convicted Jana Nečasová (Nagyová), head of office of former Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas, of abuse of military intelligence (VZ) and meted out a 12-month sentence suspended for four years to her, state attorney Pavel Komar told the Czech News Agency today.

Komar said that since the state attorney's office would file a protest against the decision, the main proceedings would be ordered.

Nečasová was charged with abuse of power for having ordered the VZ to spy on Nečas’ then-wife and two government office employees who allegedly knew she had a love affair with Nečas.

Nečas’ center-right government fell over the scandal last summer. Nečas (Civic Democratic Party, ODS) then divorced his wife and married Nagyová in September.

The ruling included the halt to criminal prosecution of VZ member Jan Pohunek.

The court has passed the cases of the two remaining defendants, former VZ heads Ondrej Páleník and Milan Kovanda, to the Defense Ministry for disciplinary proceedings.

The state attorney's office will file a protest in this case, too, Komar said. The complaint will be dealt with by the Municipal Court in Prague that has three days for its decision, he added.

In addition, the state attorney's office will file a complaint about the halt to Pohunek’s criminal prosecution, Komar said.
