Timely information - as opposed to cement barriers - is the main weapon in the fight against terrorism, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said during a debate in the lower house of Parliament on Friday, a meeting of lawmakers to discuss an intelligence report revelation that funds had been sent from someone in the Czech Republic to the terror organisation ISIS last year. The prime minister said that the country’s counter-intelligence service, BIS, had a clear role in monitoring activities and gauging potential threats. The government is trying to boost the intelligence services in reaction to the security situation globally.
