A criminal prosecution in the murder of ten members of the alleged Mafia gang called the Pápays that occurred in the Fontána bar in Dunajská Streda was closed by the courts after more than twelve years, the Sme daily reported.

The Regional Court in Trnava halted the prosecution of the last two suspects, brothers Szilárd and Csaba Raisz, who were recently reported as dead by the police, Sme wrote on September 13, adding that this left no defendants in what was the biggest murder in the history of modern-day Slovakia.

Sme wrote that the Raisz brothers probably acted as mediators in the crime and that the actual murderers were two foreigners who disappeared immediately after the crime. A third man on the crime site, Arpád Szamaránsky, was killed in car accident in 2005. The person thought to be the initiator of the murders, Ludovit Sator, an alleged competitor of the Pápay gang, was never accused of the crime and some hint that he may already be dead as well.

Sator has been accused of the murder of the Raisz brothers, whose bodies were found this March, and he is still officially reported as a wanted man.
