At a press conference this afternoon, Police deputy commissioner Lubomir Abel and head of Bratislava Regional Police, Csaba Farago, announced that they had solved the case involving the shooting of 27-year old Albanian at a cafe on Friday.
It took the police just three days to press murder charges against 31-year old Jeton Vokrri, also from Albania. Vokrri is at large, and so the police have put out an APB on him and are waiting on the issue of the arrest warrant.
Although Vokrri has no criminal record in Slovakia, deputy commissioner Abel said the police had suspicions that he was robbing cars while the driver was trying to change a tyre that Vokrri would puncture. The motive for the cold-blooded murder in Bratislava is still unknown, but the police suspect it was a payback killing.
Slovakia was chosen for the hit even though both the victim and the killer have residence registered in the Czech Republic and Hungary, respectively.
