Secret service laws have major flaws

President Rudolf Schuster will have to return several laws on the secret service to parliament for further debate after they were passed this week with serious flaws, including a date of taking effect that has already passed.

MPs blamed the errors on the haste with which the legislature has been trying to complete its work before a summer recess. Toady is the last day the current parliament sits in its four-year term before September 20-21 elections.
