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.
