Ex-boss of SIS counter-intelligence charged

CHARGES for attacking a public official were laid by military prosecutors against Peter Tóth, the head of counter intelligence at the Slovak Information Service (SIS).

Tóth is alleged to have authored an anonymous criminal complaint that accuses Interior Minister Vladimír Palko of covering up the illegal wire-tapping of Pavol Rusko, head of the co-ruling New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party.

The appointment of Tóth as the head of counter intelligence at the end of February eventually led to the resignation of SIS director Vladimír Mitro. He was replaced by former interior minister Ladislav Pittner. According to available information, Tóth, who has denied involvement in the matter, is still an SIS employee, currently on 30 percent of his pay until the case is over. If convicted, he faces up to one year in prison or a fine.
