President remains concerned over illegal phone bugging

Illegal phone bugging has once again evoked the concern of President Rudolf Schuster, daily SME reported.

On October 5, Schuster received an explanation from the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) for his earlier concerns pertaining to the security file of the former head of the National Security Office (NBÚ), Ján Mojžiš, that the SIS delivered to the President.

"The explanation that the President received from the SIS has not dispelled his concerns that phones can be illegally tapped," presidential spokesman Jan Fule said.

Schuster assumes that part of the information on Mojžiš that served as the main reason for his recall was collected through illegal phone tapping.

Speaker of Parliament Pavol Hrušovský refused to comment on the SIS report that he received along with Schuster.
