The General Prosecutor’s Office summoned a press conference for October 1, during which it revealed new facts concerning the murders of reporter Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová in February.
The General Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that the target was Kuciak, while Kušnírová was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, the Sme daily reported.
Kuciak’s murder was allegedly ordered for the price of €70,00, €50,000 plus €20,000 as debt remission. The person who ordered the hit was Alena Zs., ex-police officer Tomáš Sz. was the hitman, Miroslav M. the driver and Zoltán A. the go-between.
Local media said Alena Zs. had worked as an interpreter for Slovak entrepreneur Marian Kocner, whose business activities were the subject of an investigation by Kuciak.
Local media added that Kocner is allegedly the godfather of the 44-year-old woman's daughter.
Kuciak had investigated the links between the Calabrian mafia (Ndrangheta) and politics in Slovakia. Alena Zs, the businesswoman who commissioned the crime, had a relationship with Italian companies that acted as the facade of the Ndrangheta
