One of the five people who faced charges over the Kuciak murder now knows how much prison time he will serve for his involvement in the crime that changed the turn of events in Slovakia. On Friday, ZoltánAndruskó closed an agreement on guilt and punishment with the prosecutor. He admitted to his involvement in the murder and got a lower prison sentence in return - an unknown number of years for now, pending court approval.
There have also been some developments for the other four accused. The police team investigating the Kuciak murder has been dissolved after the prosecutor pressed formal charges against them foursome, including Marian Kočner, whose phone continues to be a source of scandals on a daily basis.
