Businessman Ignác Ilčišin, who a few years ago claimed that he held 34 percent of the shares in Transpetrol and was its CEO, may soon make an appearance before Slovakia’s Specialised Court, according to Police Corps spokesman Michal Slivka, as cited by the aktualne.sk news website on June 19.
An investigator of the Office to Combat Corruption has submitted a proposal to the Special Prosecutor's Office to bring charges against Ilcisin for fraud. If convicted, he could face 15 years in prison.
Ilčišin, acting as the alleged CEO of Transpetrol, acknowledged a debt of almost €13 million to a certain company and the debt was not paid, TASR wrote based on the aktualne.sk report.
The Regional Court in Žilina sentenced Ilčišin to nine years in jail for a different case of fraud involving Transpetrol but Slovakia’s Supreme Court overruled the verdict.
