Crime and justice: According to the hospital in the city of Banská Bystrica, where the prime minister is being treated for gunshot wounds, Fico’s ability to communicate has improved, five days after the assassination of him.

The hospital and the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Robert Kalinak confirmed on Sunday that the 59-year-old’s life was out of danger.

But despite the progress, the hospital said on Monday that Fico is unlikely to be transferred to the capital Bratislava for care in the coming days.

In the assassination, Fico was hit by five shots. The alleged perpetrator was remanded in custody on Saturday. Local media refer to him as a 71-year-old poet who previously worked as a security guard.
