Surveillance saga goes on

Attorney General Milan Hanzel said a common perpetrator could be behind the recently discovered illicit surveillance material that includes tape recordings of phone calls of Ján Bazgon, a businessman believed to be close to the ruling SDKÚ party, and an earlier recording of the coalition ANO party boss, Pavol Rusko.

Deputy speaker of parliament Béla Bugár said he had heard that discrediting recordings from illicit surveillance could be ordered for about Sk350,000 (8,300 euro) under the previous government, but that authorities had never managed to prove the allegations.
