Slovak president Kiska says police leadership needs to be changed

BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - Slovak President Andrej Kiska said on Thursday he had agreed with new Interior Minister Tomas Drucker that leadership of the country’s police force needs to be replaced.

Kiska appointed a new cabinet on Thursday following the resignation of long-time Prime Minister Robert Fico last week amid public demands for guarantees of an impartial investigation into the murder of an investigative journalist who covered links between politicians and businessmen.
