Mojžiš removal planned?

PRIVATE news channel TA3 reported that, according to its sources, the recall of Ján Mojžiš, former head of the National Security Office (NBÚ), was planned and that the removal was the result of an intelligence operation by the country's intelligence service (SIS) and military intelligence (VOS).

Mojžiš was recalled on October 2, several weeks after PM Mikuláš Dzurinda declared he had "totally lost trust" in the official.

According to TA3, the SIS allegedly asked VOS to collect discrediting materials on Mojžiš that would enable his recall.

PM Dzurinda as well as SIS spokesman Vladimír Šimko denied the allegations.

Dzurinda said: "That is not nice and it's untrue. It's a crazy lie."
