MTI was informed by the Prosecutor’s Office, which also added that the person who arranged the murder is still unknown.

Prior to February 11, 1998 Jozef R was asked by an unknown person to kill Hungarian businessman János Fenyö. He agreed and was assisted by Ladislav T and Jozef H. According to the charge, Jozef R and Ladislav T committed the murder with an automatic gun with a silencer after they had – together with Jozef H – been following Fenyö. On February 11 at around 16:00, they were following Fenyö when Jozef R left their car while stopped at a traffic light in the second Budapest borough, and fatally shot him through car window, after which he fled.

The Prosecutor’s Office charged Jozef R with premeditated murder and abuse of a gun and ammunition; Ladislav T was charged with the crime of aiding a premeditated murder and abuse of a gun and ammunition. Jozef R was interrogated as a suspect in the case of a bomb attack that occurred in Budapest in 1988. He was detained in February 2011 in Slovakia based on an international warrant issued in Hungary. Since April 18, 2011 he has been in custody in Hungary.
