Another person charged in the Kuciak murder case

On Sunday, the court will decide on the custody of the three men arrested on Thursday.

In addition to the three men who were arrested on Thursday and charged with premeditated murder, among other crimes, on Friday, the police charged a woman, Alena Z., with premeditated murder in the form of participation. The General Prosecutor's Office confirmed this after the private TV channel Markiza broke the story.

Alena Z. was detained on Friday, during a police raid that the elite police Lynx Commando conducted in her house in the southern-Slovak town of Komárno. Early reports suggested that Alena Z. worked for controversial tycoon Marian Kočner as an Italian language interpreter, but this information has not been confirmed.

Kočner is currently in custody due to an unrelated case. In the past, he threatened Kuciak and other journalists.

The JOJ TV reported that the police accused Alena Z. of ordering the murder, but neither the police nor the prosecutors have confirmed this information.
