SMER's Kaliňák names members of criminal group

Opposition SMER MP Robert Kaliňák published a list of people who allegedly are involved in a group, which according to Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has been destabilizing the state and harming the credit of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ).

Kaliňák listed National Security Office director Ján Mojžiš, police investigator Jozef Šátek, Editor-in-Chief of the daily SME Martin M. Šimečka, journalist Milan Žitný and businessmen Miloš Žiak, Peter Lukeš and Michal Lazar as members of the group that Dzurinda recently blamed for the critical articles published by British journal Jane's Intelligence Digest.

Kalinak who serves as head of the parliamentary defense committee said that Dzurinda has reportedly labelled these people as his enemies.

The prime minister delivered his testimony to the case of the criminal group to a special prosecutor on Monday, the daily SME reported.
