Spy boss promises changes to SIS

Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) head Ladislav Pittner will submit measures to eliminate the possibility of illegal wire-tapping to the next sitting of the state's security council, which Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda plans to summon in August.

The state's top security body involving the prime minister, his deputies and ministers of defense, interior, finance and foreign affairs will meet to deal with the illegal tapping of the editorial office of daily SME by the SIS.

Parliament lashed out at Dzurinda for not summoning the body sooner.
