Call for change of secret-service head

The Christian Democrats (KDH), Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), and New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) will call for the removal of Slovak Information Service (SIS) chief Vladimír Mitro in coalition talks to be held tomorrow.

The SIS has been suspected of involvement in a series of illegally tapped phone calls that have recently come to light, including those of ANO leader Pavol Rusko.

NATO general secretary George Robertson has warned that Slovakia must show that its SIS security service is secure from outside influences.
