Anniversary of student's murder commemorated in Bratislava

A SPECIAL ceremony took place on the Tyršovo Embankment in Bratislava on November 4 to commemorate the death of student Daniel Tupý, who was murdered exactly one year ago, allegedly by neo-Nazis.

Among those attending the ceremony were Tupý's relatives and friends, Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák and poet Daniel Hevier, who was one of the student's university lecturers, TASR reported.

Meanwhile, the police have rejected claims in the media that Tupý could have been murdered by people from the criminal underworld. "The police are working intensively on the assumption that Tupý was killed by neo-Nazis," said Kaliňák, who met the student's parents earlier on November 4 to update them on the course of the investigation.

Kaliňák says that the investigation is complicated partly because the murder wasn't planned. "Daniel and his friends were in the wrong place at the wrong time. The police have made progress during the year and the culprits shouldn't feel safe," he said, adding that he wants this type of murder to be completely eliminated in the future.
