Zurian, who will officially assume the position in May, is currently leading the National Criminal Unit.

Why did it take so long?

The NAKA was temporarily led by Patrik Jurík, who replaced Hraško.

Then-acting police corps president Milan Lučanský did not feel that he should appoint the new head of the NAKA, as he only held his position temporarily.

However, he successfully passed the selection procedure and was appointed new police corps president in mid-April.
