Top Czech attorney rules PM Babis's fraud investigation to continue

PRAGUE, Dec 4 (Reuters) - The top Czech state attorney has ruled that Prime Minister Andrej Babis will be further investigated for fraud in receiving European Union subsidies, reversing an earlier decision to drop the case, the attorney said on Wednesday.

Babis, a billionaire businessman, had been investigated on suspicion of illegally tapping 2 million euros in subsidies to build a conference centre outside Prague. He has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and rejected calls to resign over the case. (Reporting by Jan Lopatka; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
