"During the legal timeframe - 48 hours - police checked and searched for facts needed for an indictment," Reuters quoted police spokesperson Denisa Baloghová as saying. "After the 48 hours passed, the persons were released from detention."

The Special Prosecutor's Office declined to comment on the investigation of the murder of investigative reporter Jan Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova.
