SIS report: Eastern countries spied on Slovakia

The Slovak Information Service (SIS) uncovered foreign secret service agents from unnamed former Soviet block countries operating in Slovakia last year, says the annual report on SIS activities.

The report states: "The ambassadors from the countries concerned were warned that Slovakia would not tolerate such activities on its territory in the future."

Hungarian Coalition leader Béla Bugár was disappointed that the report did not include specific information on a phone-tapping scandal that rocked the country at the beginning of 2003.
