Schuster trusts NBÚ Director

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster fully trusts director of the National Security Office (NBÚ) Ján Mojžiš, who allegedly is included in Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's list of the "enemies of the state".

Presidential spokesman Ján Füle told the daily SME that General Prosecutor Milan Hanzel has been updating Schuster with the case's developments.

According to Füle, Schuster is concerned that the case has been damaging Slovakia's international credibility. Controversy over the issuing of security clearance for confidential data certainly does not promote the country's entry into NATO, the president says.

The spokesman said that the president is disappointed that the problems are being solved through media.
