Slovak President Andrej Kiska said that early elections could be an option for the resumption of public confidence in connection with the murder of an investigative journalist that shocked the nation. This is reported by Reuters.
On Sunday, March 4, Kiska announced the need for negotiations with political parties in connection with the current situation.
Investigative journalist Jan Kuchak was killed along with his girlfriend Monika Kusnirova in her own house in the village of Velka Macha near the town of Trnava. Law enforcers suggest that the murder occurred between February 22 and 25. Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico said that the government is ready to pay 1 million euros for information that will help the investigation.
The motive of the crime could be the professional activity of a journalist, in particular his investigation of the activities of the Italian mafia in the east of the country.
Later, the Slovak police reported the detention of a suspect in the murder of journalist Jan Kuchak.
The Slovak police released six of the seven suspects detained in the investigation into the murder of journalist Jan Kuchak and his bride.
