Police investigates classified information leak

The daily SME disseminated transcripts of the alleged testimony of Slovak Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda pertaining to the operation of a group that he said was harming state interest.

SME editor-in-chief Martin M. Šimeèka claimed that the testimony from August 18 was freely accessible on the internet.

Prosecutor Dusan Kovacik has confirmed the authenticity of the testimony, explaining that it differs from the original only by grammar mistakes, SME reported.

Prosecutor Milan Hanzel said it was outrageous that the testimony appeared on the internet, while Interior Minister Vladimír Palko refused to comment on the content. He excluded the possibility that the information leaked from his ministry.

PM Dzurinda refused to comment on the issue and released a formal statement that "it is disturbing if the media engage in illegal practices by disseminating the testimonies of Slovak citizens."
