Interior Ministry will run Schengen Information System

According to an amendment to the Police Corps Law approved by the government at its regular session in Bratislava on April 18, the Schengen Information System in Slovakia will be run by the Interior Ministry.

The police forces of EU member states will provide the system with information on suspects, documents, weapons and vehicles. Slovakia must approve the amendment before the EU can decide in the first half of 2007 whether Slovakia is able to provide sufficient protection of personal data, and can be permitted to begin gathering data for the Schengen Information System.

Slovakia is currently taking measures to allow it to join the Schengen zone at the end of this year as scheduled.
