NORMATIVE REGULATION OF INTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY SYSTEMS OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND THE SLOVAKIA REPUBLIC
Current intelligence and security system of the Czech Republic is the result of a radical discontinuity and reckoning with the inherited intelligence and security structures after “velvet revolution”, demolition and removal of the communist regime of Soviet influence in late 1989. year. The State Security Service (StB) as a symbol of the previous government was dissolved immediately, her records have been made public, and a number of its leaders and members lustrated and prosecuted. These processes are accompanied by numerous problems, but they often glorify in the public as a method that should be used in other former socialist countries (so-called The Czech Model). Otherwise, the current intelligence and security system of the Czech Republic stems from the act with the force no. 153 of 1994 year.
Upon gaining independence Slovakia acceded to the redefinition, normative regulation and constitution of intelligence and security organs and the body, but to the reform of the security system acceded much more cautiously, keeping part of the inherited institutional arrangements, with the replacement of compromised personnel from the previous regime. The Law on Slovak Intelligence Service from 1993 is essential legal act for the reform process, but also for the constitution of the current security system, as one of the best European law in this field, who once served as a model for legislature of the Republic of Serbia (so-calledThe Slovak Model).
