PRAGUE (Reuters) – The Prague state attorney has halted criminal investigations into Prime Minister Andrej Babis, his family members and others, the attorney’s office said on Friday.

The investigations into accusations of fraud related to tapping European Union subsidies had posed the biggest challenge to Babis’ political career. He had long denied any wrongdoing.
