A 17-member commission has been officially established to look into the suicide of former police chief Milan Lučanský.
Lučanský committed suicide on December 29 in the Prešov prison and was subsequently transported to the hospital. His death was officially confirmed a day later.
Justice Minister Mária Kolíková (Za Ľudí) said she understands questions raised after Lučanský’s death and stressed she is ready to cooperate with the commission.
Meanwhile, the parliamentary defence and security commission will meet on January 7 to discuss the injuries and death of Lučanský. It was initiated by ex-interior minister Denisa Saková.
The Smer party, under whose rule Lučanský took the top police post, also wants the investigation to be attended by the representatives of the EU. Smer MEP Monika Beňová has already addressed the respective bodies.
No reason to step down
