SIS report addressing tapping device security

HEAD of Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) Ladislav Pittner produced a technical report for PM Mikuláš Dzurinda in which proposed several solutions to safeguard the protection of the service's tapping devices, Slovak daily Prvada reported.

The measures come as a response to past scandals in which the SIS allegedly wiretapped daily newspaper Sme illegally.

One of the proposed measures is the purchase of a modern tapping device that would require increasing SIS' budget for next year by hundreds of millions of crowns. The draft 2004 budget proposes Sk1 billion (€23.8 million) for SIS.
