The daily SME writes that the Nation's Memory Institute (UVVM) has offered documents on the brutal murder of priest Štefan Polák twenty years ago to the Prosecutor General.

The UPN believes that the Communists stand behind the murder. The murder at the Borovce presbytery is one of the four cases that the UPN wants to reopen. The murder case of Štefan Polák was investigated as a robbery. The regime put the best investigators on the case that shook Slovakia in 1987.

The minister wanted the offender by Christmas, and thus the police found homeless alcohol addict Ladislav Macháč. He confessed to the murder, but after a few days in prison recalled his confession. His descriptions of what happened that night differed many times from reality. SITA
