The Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) will sue the authors of British journal Jane's Intelligence Digest (JID) articles, which criticized conditions within the SIS.
Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda says that the JID articles along with several scandals surrounding the SIS had been produced by failed SIS members and former members of the communist secret police ŠtB whom SIS boss Ladislav Pittner wanted to force out from the organisation for their murky past and deficient work.
Dzurinda claims to know names of the SIS scandalmongers but said he would wait to publish them until he finds further evidence, the daily SME reported.
