SIS further stated that even though the confidential nature of its work limits its options for presentations to the media, SIS has taken a position regarding what it called "half-truths and misleading information" that has appeared in the media.

"Immediately after the Interior Ministry announced that an investigative team had been set up, we offered Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic assistance in verifying relevant facts and SIS' responses to all requests in the matter have been helpful," according to the statement, as quoted by TASR.

The statement also asserts that the Gorilla file involves various pieces of confidential information and their dissemination and publication would be illegal.
