A major trial begins today against plaintiffs Dušan Borženský, allegedly a Kosice underworld leader, and two accomplices with charges including murder, attempted murder, extortion, armed robbery and assault.
Among other things, Borženský is believed to have been involved in the 1999 murder of alleged Košice mob boss Karol Kolárik.
