IP:I do not know of any legislative proposal that addresses this.
TSS: So you have not discussed it?
IP:We've discussed it in a general way and we talked also about the issue of balance. But how it should be secured and what should be done - this has not been concluded yet. I cannot comment on it. And, after all, in the end it is all in the hands of parliament.
TSS: So are you for the verification of the ŠtB documents in ÚPN archives or not?
IP:Regardless of how the amendment concerning the ÚPN is implemented, I do not think the amount of information being declassified will be affected because of it.
TSS: Documents under the ÚPN's care are originals and would be quite hard to verify. The question could arise who would verify them and how.
IP:Of course. But until I see a particular draft, I can hardly give my opinion on the matter.
