“At least five persons are believed to have participated in this offence – four civilians and one professional soldier,” said Peter Šufliarsky of the Office of the General Prosecutor.

Two masked men armed with iron rods attacked Dobrovič on November 7, 2009, near his house in Veľký Šariš, near Prešov. The motive is believed to have been linked to Dobrovič’s post.
