The daily Mladá fronta Dnes claims to have acquired evidence that the security agency ABL, formerly owned by Transport Minister Vít Bárta, spied on senior Civic Democrat politicians in the course of 2007. The daily said it was ready to produce photographs, video recordings and other documents to prove its claims. The newspaper first released information on the case in September of last year, starting a police investigation. The transport minister who sold the security agency - including its detective service - to his brother before taking office, gave the prime minister his solemn pledge the agency had not spied on politicians. The police have asked to see the new evidence.
