THERE are no secret CIA jails for Al-Quaeda terrorists in Slovakia, said Slovak Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic, responding to information published by The Washington Post. The US newspaper published an article claiming that the US secret service has such clandestine jails in Eastern Europe.

"The CIA does not hold anyone in our state," said Lipšic. "We are not aware of anything like this," added Juraj Tomaga, the spokesman for the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry.

The Slovak information Service (SIS) has no information indicating that the US operated secret jails on the Slovak Republic's territory, SIS spokesman Vladimír Šimko told the news wire TASR.

"We don't have such information. We come across it in open sources, but we have not heard before that there was a secret prison on Slovakia's territory," SIS spokesman Šimko said.
