THE POLICE still do not understand why 51-year-old municipal police officer Milan Juhász shot dead three Roma citizens and seriously injured another two in Hurbanovo on June 16. Though they have taken testimony from several witnesses, the investigation has not moved forward to a conclusion, Police Corps President Tibor Gašpar told the Sme daily.

THE POLICE still do not understand why 51-year-old municipal police officer Milan Juhász shot dead three Roma citizens and seriously injured another two in Hurbanovo on June 16. Though they have taken testimony from several witnesses, the investigation has not moved forward to a conclusion, Police Corps President Tibor Gašpar told the Sme daily.

Juhász is to be examined by a psychiatrist as he has claimed he suffers memory loss and cannot remember the details of the shooting.

“Maybe [the psychological evaluation] will provide us with some answers but we will have to wait for [the results],” stated Gašpar, as quoted by Sme, adding that the psychiatrist will try to determine whether Juhász had been suffering from any mental disorders.

Juhász has been charged with premeditated murder, violation of the sanctity of a home and carrying a concealed weapon. A judge from the Specialised Criminal Court in Banská Bystrica has accepted a proposal from the General Prosecutor’s office to keep Juhász in custody. The prosecutor reasoned that Juhász faces very serious charges and there is a possibility that he could commit further crimes if he is free, the SITA newswire reported.
