Mistress _ now wife _ of ex-Czech PM to face trial

June 6, 2014

PRAGUE (AP) — The wife of former Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas will stand trial in a case that brought down his center-right government.

The state prosecution said in a statement Friday that Jana Necasova, formerly Nagyova, two former heads of the military intelligence agency and an intelligence agent will face charges of misuse of power.

They face up to three years in prison if convicted. No date has been set yet.

Necas’ government collapsed a year ago in a whirlwind of corruption and marital infidelity allegations. The prosecution alleged Nagyova — then Necas’ chief of staff — ordered the military intelligence agency to spy on Necas’ estranged wife.

Necas admitted having an affair with Nagyova after his government’s fall in June. He has since divorced his first wife and married Nagyova.
