A book about the 'Gorilla' files that Canadian-Slovak investigative journalist Tom Nicholson has been preparing for a long time cannot be published and distributed for the time being, Bratislava I District Court ruled on Thursday, TASR newswire reported on February 4.
The book deals with files leaked from the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) that indicate corrupt behaviour involving Slovak politicians and powerful business groups in the country.
The Gorilla file is document circulating on the internet, reportedly containing transcripts of bugged conversations made by Slovakia's intelligence service, the SIS. The transcripts imply that there was high-level political corruption during the second government of Dzurinda in 2005-2006.
"As long as we're in a law-based state, every individual or organisation has a right to claim its rights in a legal way," TASR was told by Penta spokesman Martin Danko, who refused to comment on the group's legal steps.
