Alena Zsuzsová is guilty of ordering the murder of the mayor of the southern-Slovak town of Hurbanovo.
The Specialised Criminal Court gave its verdict on December 4, 2020 and sentenced Zsuzsová to 21 years in prison in the case of the premeditated murder of László Basternák.
Zsuzsová has also been suspected of ordering the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak, during which his fiancée Martina Kušnírová was also killed. The Specialised Criminal Court has stripped her of charges in that case and the verdict has been appealed.
Zsuzsová has also been charged with preparing the murders of lawyer Daniel Lipšic, prosecutor Peter Šufliarsky, and the recently-elected new general prosecutor Maroš Žilinka.
