Slovaks accused of student's murder sent to custody
Three Slovaks who were accused of participation in the murder of student Daniel Tupy in 2005 will be remanded in custody, a district court in Bratislava decided today, lawyer Peter Filip, representing one of the accused, told CTK.
All the accused have appealed the decision, Filip said.
Tupy, a 21-year old student of the Faculty of Arts, was murdered on the embankment in Bratislava in November 2005. The group of assailants also attacked and injured his friends.
The police suspected neo-Nazis of the murder.
The murder then stirred up public protests against right-wing extremism.
One of the men has been accused of murder, the other two of attempted bodily hard.
Besides, all three are being prosecuted for breach of the peace.
The police have also accused a fourth man of bodily harm, but he committed suicide shortly after the student's death.
According to some media, the man belonged to one of Bratislava's underworld gangs.
