Radičová says her transfer of SIS document to investigators was appropriate

Prime Minister Iveta Radičová said after a meeting of the cabinet on February 8 that she presented a document concerning the so-called Gorilla file to investigators after receiving several legal analyses saying it was proper to do so, the TASR newswire reported. The Sme daily wrote on February 9 that Jaroslav Haščák of the Penta financial group asked to have the document excluded from further investigations of the Gorilla file because the Slovak Intelligence Service (SIS) had given it to then-Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda (SDKÚ) in 2006 but Dzurinda did not take any action at that time.

Haščák's lawyers claim that the law states that if Dzurinda no needed the document, he should have returned it to SIS and it should not have been deposited in the prime minister’s archives.

Radičová said that legal analyses she ordered concluded that submitting the document to investigators at this time is in accordance with the law, the TASR newswire reported.
