Former interior minister would support law on obtaining phone records

Former interior minister Vladimír Palko, speaking on TV Joj's political discussion show "Politika.sk" on June 10, said that he would support a draft law giving police access to phone records without having to first obtain permission from a court.

Current Interior Minister Róbert Kaliňák, who was also on the show, said that the law needs to be changed to speed the process up. Kaliňák said that at the moment, getting a judge's warrant takes "three to four days, and someone can die within that time".
