Interior Minister Ivan Šimko says opposition leader Vladimír Mečiar’s proposal that secret service files regarding the 1995 kidnapping of Michal Kováč Jr be declassified is “a great idea”. The secret service under Mečiar’s 1994 to 1998 government is suspected of having organised the kidnapping of Kováč, son of the then-sitting President. The declassified files would allow lawyers for Kováč and the service to make material available to the public. The move must be approved by Slovak Intelligence Service head Vladimír Mitro.
