On the day the world marks International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the National Crime Agency (NAKA) arrested eight people in the unsolved case of murdered student Daniel Tupý.
“We cannot provide more information at this point,” said the police on March 21.
However, the Tvnoviny.sk news website claims that the two arrested men are Marián Molnár and Matej Bulík, who are associated with neo-Nazi groups. Persons bearing these names were also suspected in the case years ago.
The murder case has remained open for 18 years. Last year President Zuzana Čaputová called the case a “scar” on all society in Slovakia, because nobody has been punished to date. She made the statement at the opening of the reconstructed Memorial to the Victims of Extremism in the Tyršovo Nábrežie area, on the Petržalka bank of the Danube River. Tupý was killed there.
