Intelligence files on NBÚ boss found in PM's repository

Prime Minister Mikulás Dzurinda had a classified file on National Security Office (NBÚ) head Ján Mojžiš in his repository, NBÚ employees discovered this last Friday, daily SME writes.

The file contains the results of a security vetting carried out on Mojžiš last year, and served as grounds for Dzurinda's trials to sack the NBÚ head. However, the NBÚ claims that the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) provided the files to Dzurinda illegally, and that in doing so SIS boss Ladislav Pittner has violated a law on classified information.

According to the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) boss Béla Bugár, if any law has been violated the SIS boss will have to leave his post, or even the seat of the PM might get shaky.

Pittner claims that he acted in line with the law regarding SIS, and that the PM is entitled to access data on the boss of the NBÚ.

Opposition Smer boss Robert Fico also wants to pursue the recall of Pittner, as well as a no-confidence motion in PM Mikulas Dzurinda if it turns out that he has violated any law.
