Individual and system failure behind abuse of Military Intelligence Services
The parliamentary commission supervising the military intelligence service, which has been looking into the circumstances of the spying sandal that brought down the government has concluded that the country’s military intelligence service was abused for private purposes due to system failure as well as failure on the part several individuals. Jan Vidim, a member of the commission, said it would be advisable to amend the law in a manner which would effectively prevent the abuse of the country’s military services by a group of individuals. The military intelligence service has come under fire for having taken orders from the prime minister’s chief-of-staff and following them without question. It is not clear if the orders were given in the prime minister’s name.
