Slovak Communists on list of receivers of Saddam's money

The Communist Party of Slovakia (KSS) is on the list of parties that former president of Iraq Saddam Hussein paid for their forthcoming attitude to his political regime in Iraq.

According to the CIA, which released the names of individuals, companies and political parties from 40 countries, those listed were supposed to work on easing the sanctions towards Iraq, wrote the daily SME.

KSS leader Jozef Ševc said that the information is part of US President George Bush's presidential campaign. He denied receiving any money from Saddam's regime. He also claimed it was part of an intelligence game by the CIA.

Matúš Kotrba, analyst with the Center of Defense Studies, said he could see no reason why the CIA would want to discredit the KSS.
