SIS report addressing tapping device security

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

The measures come in response to past scandals in the SIS that involved suspicions of illegal wiretapping of the daily SME newspaper.

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 2004 draft budget proposes Sk1 billion (€23.8 million) for SIS.
