Public show interest in secret service files

Public interest in their communist secret service files has been so great that the new National Memory Institute has had to print more information request forms just two weeks after it opened, say staff at the Justice Ministry.

Most of the applicants turning up in person at the institute have been older people, including some Slovak expatriates, according to the daily Sme.

The application forms are also available on the internet.
