“The aim of procedures in question is to seize computer devices, which will be then submitted to expert investigation,” the police informed on Facebook, not giving away any further details.

The police are searching sites in Bratislava and in the nearby city of Senec, as well as Prievidza, situated in the Trenčín Region.

With reference to the surveillance of journalists, NAKA raided one of the bars on Panenská Street in Bratislava on May 17, 2018.

Marian Kočner, charged with ordering the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak, is alleged to have ordered the surveillance of journalists.
