Police begin investigating case of Russian spy

24-08-2010

Czech police have begun investigating the case of an alleged Russian spy who may have infiltrated the Army General Staff. The charges were pressed by the former head of the police section for investigations in the armed forces, Martin Hádek. He has questioned why no one is being investigated in spite of a scandal that resulted in the dismissal of three army generals and a major. The daily Mladá fronta Dnes reported in late July that the alleged agent had been gathering information about the generals via the major, who ran their office. He is said to have disappeared in late 2009 and went to Moscow.
