All three businessmen charged in the case of the bankrupt pyramid schemes,
BMG Invest and Horizont Slovakia, will be released from custody, the Hospodárske Noviny reported on November 21.
Tycoon Jozef Majský was released in late October and his former partners, Dávid Brtva and Patrik Pachinger, will follow him, because the Special Court missed the deadline to file a proposal to extend their detention.
The court must first decide on an objection raised by Majský that members of the Special Court senate were biased.
Majský, Brtva and Pachinger stand accused of illegally siphoning more than Sk830 million from the two unlicensed deposit companies.
