It appears that the police operation in Kolárovo (Nitra Region) probably thwarted another murder. People detained for the murder of investigative reporter Ján Kuciak and his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová, reportedly planned to kill Deputy General Prosecutor, Peter Šufliarsky, the Aktuality.sk website reported.

An unnamed source allegedly confirmed that the murder was to be carried out in Dunajská Lužná (Bratislava Region), where the prosecutor lived. The police are said to be collecting the camera records from all buildings.

“It is sensitive information,” said Andrea Predajňová, spokesperson for the General Prosecutor’s Office, as quoted by the Sme daily. “The Deputy General Prosecutor has therefore asked the media not to publish any information about the alleged preparation of the premeditated murder and let the law enforcement bodies do their job.”

The police refused to comment on the case due to ongoing investigations.

Šufliarsky became more visible at the time he was dealing with the cases of the mafia boss Mikuláš Černák. He was present when the court sentenced Černák to life. He was also dealing with other, mostly serious, mafia cases.

He became the Deputy General Prosecutor when Jaromír Čižnár was appointed to lead the General Prosecutor’s Office, Sme wrote.
