Police Close To Resolving Valko Murder Case

In an interview on Pluska.sk, interior minister Robert Kalinak informed that the police were close to an outcome in the case of prominent lawyer Ernest Valko, who was murdered in his home 18 months ago.

Although Kalinak believes mistakes were made in gathering evidence at the crime scene and some actions had been taken too hastily, he admits the investigation is nearing a conclusion. “I can’t say what kind of time frame we are talking about, but I know the police are now very close and it looks pretty promising” Kalinak explained. Kalinak expressed his conviction that the case will be resolved and the perpetrators caught.

Valko was murdered at his home in the village of Limbach near Bratislava in the evening of 8 November 2010 after being shot in the heart at point blank range. His murder sent a shockwave through Slovak society, not just because he was highly respected in his profession, but because of suspicions that his murder was probably linked to one of his high profile, and big-money, cases.

There have been many speculations about who was behind the murder of Ernest Valko and what the motive was, but like many high-profile cases in Slovakia, the truth is often so well-buried in the quagmire of corruption that we might never know. His murder certainly did seem calculated and planned because Valko could smell acetate before his doorbell rang that fateful evening (acetate can put off sniffer dogs) and the single bullet to the heart points to the strong possibility that it was a professional killer who had come to visit him.
