The Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) does not trust the leadership of the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS), HZDS boss Vladimír Mečiar said during a political debate broadcast on JOJ TV on July 1. He said the situation in the intelligence service is non-transparent since no one knows what goes on there.
Smer is building it up as its own intelligence service, said Mečiar. He said that this loss of trust will be reflected when the time comes to approve the SIS' budget. "We do not trust the leadership of the Slovak Intelligence Service and we will not support it," said Mečiar. "If we were being cheated when we approved its budget in 2006, we will not be [cheated again] in 2007."
