Slovenská Pošta board member's office bugged

The conversations of a board member of the state-owned postal company Slovenská Pošta, Andrej Kramár, have probably been eavesdropped, the Sme daily reported on Saturday, August 13. On around August 8, Sme wrote, Kramár found a listening device in his office at the main post office building in Bratislava. Kramár is a political appointee who was nominated by one of the current ruling coalition parties, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH).

The company confirmed that a device was found that could be used for eavesdropping. Neither the company management nor the Transport Ministry knows why it was planted in Kramár’s office. “We reject such practices,” said Slovenská Pošta spokesperson Bela Lisáková. The police are to deal with the case. As a member of the board of directors, Kramár is responsible for IT purchases. Slovenská Pošta, which employs over 15,000 people, is Slovakia's biggest state-owned company. Police and the Slovak Information Service (SIS), Slovakia's main intelligence agency, have both denied any knowledge of the bugging, Sme reported.
