Minister helped ŠtB

SLOVAK Health Minister Rudolf Zajac is listed as a confidant of the former Communist secret service (ŠtB), according to the files administered by the National Memory Institute (ÚPN), the Pravda daily wrote.

The ÚPN started publishing the ŠtB files in 2004.

Health sector reformer Zajac said he would make no more comments on the allegation.

Zajac previously told Pravda that he had never worked with the ŠtB and he had no idea how his name came to be in the files.
