Less than two years after the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová, the preliminary hearings will be held in the case.

The Specialised Criminal Court in Pezinok senate, chaired by Judge Ružena Sabová, will launch the preliminary hearing in the case on December 19, the TASR newswire wrote. Judge Sabová also sentenced the underworld gang known as Piťovci and two ministers of the first government of Robert Fico, who received prison sentences over the infamous bulletin-board corruption scandal, TASR noted. She is known as a good and consistent judge, Sme daily noted.
