Military intelligence chief named

DEFENCE Minister František Kašický appointed Ľubomír Skuhra as the new director of Slovak military counter-intelligence (VOS) on August 8.

Skuhra, 38, an experienced officer who has served in numerous positions in the defence and intelligence community, replaces colonel Vladimír Kotrus, who was recalled in mid-July.

VOS is a special unit of the military establishment that gathers and evaluates information deemed vital to the defence of the country - including activities jeopardising Slovakia's sovereignty, territorial integrity, defence capability, and the leaking of classified data.
