New twist in illegal surveillance case

The head of the parliamentary security committee, Robert Kalinak, said there were indications that the phone lines of the daily SME, rather than the mobile phone of Pavol Rusko, head of the coalition ANO party, had been illegally tapped after a recording of another politician was found in Interior Ministry's files.

The revelations come a few weeks after Rusko claimed his mobile phone had been illegally tapped by either the secret service or the Interior Ministry.

Interior Minister Vladimír Palko would not confirm the new information but said he thought it was unlikely. "I rather think that Rusko was tapped," he said.
