THE DEFENCE Ministry may scrap two tenders for IT systems amid concerns that the Slovak director of the local Hewlett-Packard office, which is contesting both tenders, worked for the ŠtB communist-era secret service. The tenders are together worth Sk734 million ($17 million).
Hewlett-Packard head Peter Weber admitted having cooperated with the economic branch of the ŠtB as the then-deputy head of the Office for Computing Technology, but said he had never been an agent.
