A MAN who was allegedly burned to death in his car by a policeman died on August 22 in the Bratislava Teaching Hospital, its spokesperson Rút Geržová confirmed to the ČTK newswire.

The 32-year old victim died of extensive burns that covered 90 percent of his body. He was from the village of Zohor, in western Slovakia, and was found on August 21 near his burnt car.

Peter V., a forensic expert who worked for the Bratislava police, has been arrested on suspicion of murder, according to Markizadnes.sk. According to the Interior Ministry, “sensitive family problems” may have been the motive for the crime.

Several media have reported that the men had been fighting over a woman.

On August 25, Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák signed an order ousting the 36-year old policeman from the police.
