Further intimidation in bugging case

INVESTIGATORS into illegal phone-tapping of journalists earlier this year by members of the Slovak

Intelligence Service (SIS) were again intimidated, just two days after the case was re-opened, according to the

daily Pravda.

Sources close to the investigators have said that the harassment has been via the investigators' mobile phones.

Similar claims were made during the previous investigation.

The phone-tapping scandal was one of the factors leading to former head SIS Vladimír Mitro losing his post

earlier this year. The initial investigation was unable to place the blame on specific members of the secret

service.
