Removal of Mojžiš 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 Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda declared he had "totally lost trust" in the official.

According to TA3, SIS allegedly asked VOS to collect discrediting materials on Mojžiš to 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."
