More Transparency Says New Head of Secret Service
Last week Jan Valko was appointed new head of the Slovak Information Service (SIS), with his appointment by the government endorsed by President Ivan Gasparovic.
Valko says his main priority will be to make the secret service more transparent, but many question whether someone so young and with so little experience in this field will manage the job. Valko previously worked as head of the nulcear decommissioning company JAVYS.
PM Robert Fico came to his defence, though, saying Valko had the necessary managerial skills for the SIS job and that there was mutual trust between them.
