Publication of secret service files approved

PARLIAMENT approved an amendment to the Law on the Memory of the Nation on February 27, allowing the publication of documents covering the activities of the state security services between 1939 and 1989.

Drafted by a group of MPs from the ruling coalition Christian Democrats (KDH), the amendment also sets criteria for who may join the board of the Institute of the Memory of the Nation.

Under the law, passed last year, the public has access to files of the former Czechoslovak communist secret service ŠtB for a fee of Sk2 (0.05 euro) per page.
