The team investigating the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová has been divided into two parts. One group will deal solely with the murder, while the other will investigate the economic and corruption crimes Kuciak wrote about.

“Investigators will document and investigate those who commissioned the murder and the murderers themselves,” said Police Corps President Milan Lučanský, as quoted by the TASR newswire, when commenting on the former.

Information leaks to be prevented

Lučanský would like to prevent the leak of information, as he said in a talk show broadcast by TV Pravda. The investigative team has been reduced and the competences divided.

The leak of information impacts on the quality and speed of investigation and also whether the case will be investigated or not.

“I believe that there will be a time when we discover the source of the leaks,” Lučanský added, as quoted by TASR.
