Crime and justice: Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Robert Kalinak says that Fico’s condition remains serious. But the condition is stable, the prognosis is positive and Fico is no longer in immediate danger.

Fico was shot and wounded in an assassination attempt earlier this week. He has been operated on several times.

Until then, he remains in the hospital in the city of Banska Bystrica. Moving him to the capital Bratislava has been deemed too risky.

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.
