One of the two men charged with the murder of prominent lawyer is closer to getting his deal with the prosecutor.
The Pezinok District Court heard the case of Jaroslav Klinka, who closed the agreement on guilt and punishment in May 2019, on the last day of the year. The court did not reject the deal and will further proceed to assess the proposed punishment (seven years and two months in prison) on January 31, the Sme daily reported.
