Monika Beňová (Smer) compared the case to Daphné Galizi’s murder in Malta. She emphasized that in comparison with the Maltese investigation, Slovak authorities were quick and efficient, while the results also met with favorable reactions from other MEPs in the European Parliament. A parliamentary commission lead by Sophia in t’Velt visited the country two weeks ago gathering information about the state of the case.
Ivan Štefanec (KDH) pointed out that while the supposed killers were caught it is important to find out every aspect of the murder, including the person who is behind the events. In Malta, the journalist’s killers were found, however there is no result regarding the motivations and possible political connections. Štefanec suggested the European Parliament will not cease controlling the Slovak political processes, including the budget-related issues and agricultural funding.
Richard Sulík (SaS) warned about letting the police continue the investigation without the pressure from the side of politicians. The leader of the liberal party believes the time for evaluation will come after completing the case and finding the person who ordered the murder. Boris Zala (Smer) praised the quick investigation and emphasized the role of international cooperation in police progress.
