"Police secured a pistol of the Sig Sauer brand at the crime scene that was legally owned by Valko. Criminal experts established that this was not the weapon Valko was killed with," said Dobiášová.

She added that police are still analysing evidence and interviewing witnesses. "The police are making all the necessary steps to have the case solved and the perpetrator apprehended as soon as possible," she said.

Valko, a prominent lawyer in Slovakia, was shot dead at his home on the evening of November 8. His body was found later the same day by his daughter and ex-wife. He was killed by a single bullet fired from a distance of several metres that hit him in the heart and lung, the police have said.
