Prosecutors in Olomouc have charged former chief of staff of ex-prime minister Petr Nečas, Jana Nečasová (neé Nagyová), over leaks of classified information, the news website lidovky.cz reported on Tuesday citing sources from the prosecutors’ office. Ms Nečasová allegedly provided Czech intelligence service reports to controversial businessman Ivo Rittig who has also been charged in the case, the website said. Mr Rittig also faces charges of money laundering related to his firms’ business relations with Prague’s public transportation company. The scandal involving both Ms Nečasová and Mr Rittig broke out last June when the police searched the office of the Czech government, and led to the fall of Petr Nečas’ cabinet.
