Security office wants stricter checks

THE NATIONAL Security Office (NBÚ) proposes that only the prime minister, president, speaker of parliament and Constitutional Court judges should be able to access classified information without having to undergo NBÚ background checks, reports the daily Národná obroda.

The ruling coalition has reservations towards the draft revision that the NBÚ is pursuing. Head of the parliamentary constitutional committee Ján Drgonec says that "the NBÚ proposal is completely nauseating" and he accused the office of trying to check the whole state.

The NBÚ has rejected the criticism and claims that clearances are normal procedure in NATO countries.
