A Czech state attorney has dropped charges against the ruling ANO party's number two Jaroslav Faltynek and three others but will further pursue fraud charges against Prime Minister Andrej Babis, a spokeswoman said Thursday.Babis and 10 others including Faltynek had faced charges that they hid ownership of a farm and conference centre outside Prague to qualify for a two million euro EU subsidy a decade ago.Most other parties reject working with Babis unless he steps aside as prime minister, pending the investigation.Babis' wife Monika Babisova is among the people facing charges which carry jail sentences if proven in court.
