Secret police files on Internet

SLOVAKIA'S Institute of National Memory (UPN) will publish files maintained by the ŠtB, the communist-era secret service, on the Internet November 16, news wire TASR reported.

The first of twenty books of data comes from the former ŠtB office in eastern Slovakia and covers the period from the mid-1950s to 1989.

"These files are important for people who want to know whether the ŠtB spied on them and had a file on them," the UPN's spokesman Michal Dzurjanin said.

The UPN will begin publishing files from the ŠtB office in Banská Bystrica, central Slovakia, in January or February, while files from western Slovakia should be made available in 2005.
