BRATISLAVA - The parliamentary defence and security committee on Friday didn"t adopt any resolution regarding the case of Lukas Kyselica"s involvement with Military Intelligence, as committee member Gabor Grendel (OLaNO) objected that the committee isn"t competent to deal with the matter, with committee chair Juraj Krupa (OLaNO) agreeing with him. Meanwhile, opposition committee members, who initiated the session, complained that the committee wasn"t allowed to carry out the session behind closed doors, which prevented them from asking Kyselica relevant questions. As a result, they signalled that they will initiate a probe of the special parliamentary committee supervising Military Intelligence. Kyselica stated after the session that he intends to return to Parliament as an MP.
