Vetting chief focus of discrediting campaign

The National Security Office (NBU) said that various former communist secret service agents currently employed in Slovak security bodies have been plotting to discredit NBU chief Jan Mojzis.

The NBU is a national vetting authority that carries out reliability tests on the state employees who will have access to NATO's classified information after Slovakia joins the alliance, scheduled to take place in 2004.
