Memory institute publishes more spy files

THE NATIONAL Memory Institute (ÚPN) published another series of Communist-era secret service (ŠtB) files on the Internet February 8.

These latest files are from the former region of Central Slovakia, which roughly includes the current regions of Banská Bystrica and Žilina, the TASR news agency wrote.

In November last year the ÚPN published the first bulk of ŠtB files, relating to Eastern Slovakia.

ÚPN director Ján Langoš said there are no current constitutional officials listed in the central Slovak files.

The Eastern Slovak ŠtB files listed former Deputy Construction Minister Ján Hurný as a secret service collaborator.

He stepped down in January because of incessant media pressure over the revelation.

The files contain not just the names of ŠtB agents and collaborators but also the names of people who were under ŠtB surveillance.
