(The original title: 'Zprava o jednani Jana Ursinyho s prednostou VII. odboru ministerstva vnitra plk. Frantiskem Jandou a vedoucím referatu Slovensko mjr. Bedrichem Pokornym 16. kvetna 1947'.) Abstract: The discussion happened at the request of Ursiny, a month after the execution of the President of the Slovak state and at a time when the deputy prime minister was interested in information about Tiso. The execution of Tiso and the circumstances accompanying it, influenced the political atmosphere in Slovakia. These events and the response to them became the theme of the discussion. Ursiny justified his attitude to Tiso and expressed fear of the further results of his execution. The other serious themes were the current situation on the Slovak political scene and so in the security situation in Slovakia. The developments, which soon led to political crisis, including the so-called conspiracy in Slovakia, were already beginning. The deputy prime minister expressed views on the situation in the middle of May 1947. The report contains the formulation of Ursiny's views and evaluations, which did not appear in public.
