Slovak officials under scrutiny in journalist murder

Published

The probe’s announcement comes after local media leaked alleged text messages in which the suspects boasted of their ties to several top-level politicians including then prime minister Robert Fico.

He was forced to resign because of the fallout from the killing.

“Representatives of state authorities at various levels communicated with Marian” Kocner, the entrepreneur charged with ordering the murder, an unnamed special prosecutor told reporters, without providing details about the individuals.

“I urge these people to come forward and personally explain this communication at this stage,” he said, adding that prosecutors have reason to believe the officials committed crimes.

Journalist Jan Kuciak, 27, had been investigating Kocner’s business activities when he and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova were gunned down at home in February 2018.

Mass anti-government protests forced Fico to resign, but he remains the leader of the governing populist-left Smer-SD party and is a close ally of current Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini.

Prosecutors have charged five people over the double murder, including property developer Kocner and his one-time interpreter, named as Alena Zs.

Kocner maintains his innocence, according to his lawyer Marek Para, who did not refute the authenticity of the leaked text messages to reporters but said their contents make clear “that they don’t concern the act (of murder) at all.”

In his leaked chats with Alena Zs., which the police have examined, Kocner refers to Fico as “Squarehead”, a widely used nickname for the politician.

“I’m worried Squarehead won’t weather this,” Kocner allegedly wrote amid the public outcry after the murders came to light.

Weeks later, after Fico had already stepped down, Kocner informed Alena Zs. that he was “going to pay the Squarehead a surprise visit and kick him in the arse.”

Last week, Fico blamed the opposition and the media for linking his party to Kocner, telling reporters that their coverage against the party was “turning into a kind of jihad”.

Bratislava-based analyst Pavol Babos told AFP that “it cannot be ruled out that Kocner boasted about things that were not true in an attempt to make an impression.”

He said it was too early to tell whether the messages would influence voters in general elections set for March 2020.

But he added that “both Robert Fico and (ousted interior minister) Robert Kalinak are definitely losing coalition potential.

“I cannot imagine political parties entering into a coalition with Smer-SD.”

Mother-in-Law From Hell! Kenyan Woman Narrates How Her Mother-in-law Pooped At Her Door Step

Woman Crying

Mother-in-laws are said to be cold-hearted, unkind, unwelcoming, cruel, strict, abusive and even crooked creatures from hell. Most of them are the kind of species you’ll never want to interact with on this earth. They make their daughter-in-laws’ lives miserable and if you thought the many sad tales you’ve heard about them are wrong, wait until you read the story I’m about to write.

There are some who are good (30%) but the rest (70%) are devils. From mistreating, torturing and being abusive to their daughter-in-laws, mother-in-laws are the reason why many marriages don’t last for long. She will turn you into a slave, gossip mate and use you to harm/hurt others, woe unto you if you fail to abide by her rules.

Well, a Kenyan woman has left many shocked after she revealed the worst things her mother-in-law has ever done to her.

The woman is a mother of three adorable boys, but her mother-in-law is not happy with her. She is still following the old traditions where one was expected to give birth to children of both genders or else, one was excommunicated or forced to ‘marry a younger woman who would bear her husband children’ so as to please the community.

This woman revealed that her mother-in-law has been mistreating her and calling her all sorts of names just because she doesn’t have a female child. The satanic mother-in-law recently pooped her doorstep and told her to wipe it using her hands because she “could not bear them a girl”.

“I have had enough of this world. I am a mOther of three boys. My mother-in-law has always insulted me because I don’t have a dAughter but this evening the worst has happened, she came and pooped at my doorstep and smeared some on the door and said “panguza hiyo sababu ulikataa kunizaa” (wipe that because you refused to bear us a daughter) and I believe that this is pure witChcraft. What should I do?’ wrote the stressful woman.

Ladies, have you encountered such mother-in-laws? How do you deal with them? Leave a comment in the comment box below.

Pastor Muiru’s daughter is not as popular as Preacher Kanyari’s daughter or the Kiuna’s, as she has always kept away from the public eye, and that’s why little is known about her.
