Czech ex-PM's mistress guilty of setting spies on love rival

From BBC - November 22, 2017

A Czech court has found the wife of a former prime minister guilty of illegally using military intelligence officers to spy on his first wife.

The court handed a two-year suspended jail sentence to Jana Nagyova-Necasova, who in 2012 was chief of staff to PM Petr Necas - and his lover.

The intelligence officers gathered information on Mr Necas's then wife, Radka, whom he was divorcing.

The judge said Nagyova was motivated by a "profound hatred" of her rival.

She said Nagyova had abused her position as the chief of staff to a "submissive" Mr Necas.

The scandal contributed to the downfall of Mr Necas's centre-right government in 2013.
