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.

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