Aktuality.sk writes in a note on Kuciak's unfinished article that the portal has cooperated with the Czech Centre for Investigative Journalism, the Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI) organisation and the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) worldwide organisation in tracing the activities of Italian mafia in Slovakia.
Bela Bugar, from the Most-Hid party of mostly ethnic Hungarians, also said Thursday that foreign investigators should join the team probing the murder as both steps would increase public trust in the investigation.

Mr Gaspar identified one of those held as "Antonino V"; the other six first names he gave are also common in Italy and extremely rare in Slovakia.

Police in Slovakia said Thursday that they have detained three businessmen named in a report on organized crime and corruption that was written by a slain Slovak journalist and published posthumously earlier this week.
Italian prosecutors said they had alerted their Slovak and worldwide colleagues "some time ago" to the Calabrians who were detained, and had provided information about their alleged 'Ndrangheta links.

Prime Minister Fico on Monday offered a reward of €1 million (Rs 7.94 crore) for information on Kuciak's murderers.
The country's police chief, Tibor Gaspar, told reporters in the eastern town of Michalovce that about 10 people should be detained. "I can confirm that these raids and detentions are being carried out in several places", he said. "Yes, it has something to do with this case".
