Constitutional trio condemns illegal tapping

President Rudolf Schuster, Speaker of Parliament Pavol Hrušovský and Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda have jointly condemned the illegal tapping of the SME editorial office.

Schuster said that "these methods are like those of the mafia, not a free country" while Hrušovský promised to insist on completion of the investigation into the scandal, which has so far failed to pin the responsibility for the tapping on any individuals.

Though, Dzurinda condemned the tapping, media and ruling coalition politicians feel he should have taken more resolute steps and should not have waited so long. He remains reluctant to question the reputation of the SIS and called the appointment of new spy boss Ladislav Pittner a positive development.
