Czech Government Collapses over Spying Scandal which now links Prime Minister's wife to becoming a Jehovah's Witness
CZECH GOVERNMENT COLLAPSES OVER SPYING SCANDAL WHICH LINKS PRIME MINISTER'S WIFE TO BECOMING A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS
Prime Minister: Sex, Mistress, Gold, Espionage and a Jehovah's Witness wife?
Government Cabinet Resigns
Details of the investigation, which began with a raid on the seat of government in the early hours of Thursday (13 June), have on ly emerged in fragmentary fashion, but the investigation appears to be following three strands.
One line of inquiry is into a decision by Necas's aide, Jana Nagyová, to ask the head of military intelligence, Ondrej Páleník, to tap the phone calls of Necas's wife. The surveillance was continued under Páleník's successor, Milan Kovanda. Kovanda told a court on Friday, before being released on bail after admitting his role, that he thought he was acting to protect the prime minister. Details of a statement given by Nagyová to police have given the Czech media space to infer that Nagyová, who had worked with Necas since 2004, was romantically involved with the prime minister. However, her lawyer said yesterday that she wanted to prevent a scandal if it emerged that Necas's wife had joined the Jehovah's Witnesses...

Czech General Kovanda Arrested
Neccova was collaborating with people from the Jehovah's Witnesses
Speaking through his lawyer, General Kovanda, who was also arrested, said he believed at the time the operation to follow the prime minister's wife was in the interests of national security.
But his orders came from Ms Nagyova, rather than his superiors in the defence ministry...
Police accuse Ms Nagyova of asking military spies to tail Mr Necas's estranged wife. It is thought she cajoled friends in Czech military intelligence to find incriminating information on Mrs Necasova.
Eduard Bruna, Ms Nagyova's lawyer, has denied this, saying his client was worried the prime minister's wife had fallen under the influence of Jehovah's Witnesses.
"Necesova was collaborating with people from the Jehovah's Witnesses, and had begun to collect money for presents for some people," said Mr Bruna. "My client thought this merited an investigation and surveillance.
The JW connection to this is so tenuous that I have to suspect it is bogus. The prime ministers employee/girlfriend sounds like she's nuts.
