DIRECTOR of the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) Ladislav Pittner told the parliamentary committee overseeing SIS activities that the harmful group identified by Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda does exist.
Pittner refused to tell the committee whether he provided Dzurinda with information on the group, which reportedly has been harming the state's interests.
However, Pittner has managed to persuade the committee of the "group's" existence, and even committee head Viliam Soboňa (HZDS), who before the meeting had claimed that there is no such group, has changed his mind, wrote the daily SME.
