PM says illegal tapping case no barrier to NATO entry

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said that a case involving alleged illegal phone tapping of the ANO coalition party boss Pavol Rusko was not a barrier to the country's accession to NATO.

In an interview with the SME daily, Dzurinda said that he wanted the case - in which the Slovak secret service and the Interior Ministry are suspected by Rusko of involvement - investigated thoroughly, and "the perpetrators dealt with in a legal manner".
