Mitro on declassifying SIS files: Why not?

The head of Slovakia’s secret service, Vladimír Mitro, said he saw in principle no reason why the case file concerning the infamous 1996 kidnapping of the former president’s son should not be made available to the public. Mitro has promised to have the secret service vet the files within a month to ensure there is nothing in the documents to impair the service’s functioning.
