Jozef Majský and Patrik Pachinger, both accused of fraud and organising a criminal gang in connection with the collapse of BMG Invest and Horizont Slovakia, were released from pre-trial custody on Saturday.
Majský was released early, before 6:00, because of concerns over his safety, according to prison officials.
Pachinger told reporters as he left prison: "There is not a single shred of evidence that any of my actions could be classified as illegal."
