VLADIMÍR Mitro, former head of the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS), who resigned from his post in March 2002, has returned to his original profession and now works in a law firm.
Mitro left shortly after the media revealed that he named Peter Tóth, former journalist, as head of the SIS counterintelligence.
SIS has been criticised several times through stories featured in the reputed British magazine Jane's Intelligence Digest, which claimed SIS was recruiting journalists, employed former communist secret police agents, and was involved in arms trading.
According to the state-run news agency, TASR, Mitro is now providing legal defence for two men who are charged with organised blackmail.
