CZECH prosecutors have charged seven people, including the head of the prime minister's office and two military intelligence service members, following raids of government and private offices, high state attorney Ivo Istvan said today.

Charges included the abuse of the military intelligence service, Istvan told reporters. He also said some former lower house deputies were among those charged, for accepting illegal favours.
