Czech intelligence prepares classified report for President Zeman on Novichok nerve agent

The Czech counter-intelligence service BIS has prepared a report that President Milos Zeman ordered on whether the Novichok nerve agent was developed or stored in the country, CTK reported, citing BIS spokesman Ladislav Sticha. “The BIS fulfilled the task and the report will be given to the president on the set date. As the report is classified, we cannot make any comment on its contents,” Sticha said on Thursday. Novichok was used in an attack on a former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain in March. Russian diplomats said that the nerve agent might have come from the Czech Republic. The government in Prague dismissed the claim.
