The National Informative Service (Albanian: Shërbimi Informativ Kombëtar) was an intelligence service agency created in 1991 by the Albanian People's Assembly. Commonly known as SHIK, it was the successor to Sigurimi, the notorious secret service agency which repressed anti-communist dissent during the communist government of 1944-1991. The agency would later be replaced by SHISH.[1][2]
