SIS banned from employing journalists

THE SLOVAK Intelligence Service (SIS) may be banned from employing or using the services of journalists and policemen, the daily SME wrote.

A group of parliamentary deputies have proposed a draft law that would ban the SIS from influencing public opinion through media employees.

Gyula Bárdos of the Hungarian Coalition Party says that journalists have been employed as SIS agents and also continued being active in the media. The SIS used them to influence the public mood.

The daily assumes that former SME reporter Peter Toth, who was appointed the chief of the SIS counterintelligence department, had been working for the intelligence service as well as the newspaper. SME suspects that several other journalists have done the same thing.
