History of military intelligence - after the year 1990
This situation gave rise to an impression that there are four intelligence services in the Czech Republic. This impression has often come up not only among constitutional officials but also among the military and non-military public. The change of this dismal situation has been gradually taking place since 2003 when measures leading to the real implementing the wording of the law on the integrated Military Intelligence have been taken.
The new organizational structure of the Military Intelligence has been functioning since January 1, 2005. This one is to make effective use of possibilities of both its traditional constituents, that is to say intelligence agency and counter-intelligence service. The information outputs will be unified and these will represent the result of the coordination of both the constituents mentioned above.
By means of the character and aims of its activities, the current Military Intelligence does not look for any continuity with the past totalitarian military intelligence agency and military counter-intelligence service. It follows in the best traditions of military intelligence of the Czechoslovak Republic before 1945. All of this is done with the respect to traditional forms and methods of intelligence activities and their adaptation to the new security phenomena, first of all, to the asymmetric threats within the whole range of their forms.
