Czech police recommended charging PM Andrej Babiš, the country's second richest man, for suspected fraud following a probe into the alleged misuse of EU funds. The probe against Babiš, who rose to power by attacking the political establishment and campaigning against Muslim refugees, focuses another spotlight on the EU's eastern wing, a region that's been rocked by scandal. Babiš rejected the allegations on Wednesday, denouncing them as "an organized plot" designed to ruin his political career.
