Dzurinda explores how to sack NBÚ boss

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda is seeking support from his ruling coalition partners to recall director of the National Security Office (NBÚ) Ján Mojžiš.

However, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) are not convinced about the need to recall Mojžiš.

SMK leader Béla Bugár said that the possible repercussions of recalling Mojžiš are currently being explored.

The ruling coalition has not yet discussed the recall of the (NBÚ) boss. It has only discussed a draft bill on the protection of confidential data.

Recently, Mojžiš' name was associated with Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's alleged list of "enemies of the state."
