The document, revealed by the Sme daily in 2013, also informed about the transfers and sales of immovable property, and contained other papers, like cadastre statements and orders from VSS representatives concerning the transfers. After writing the report, he had to leave the army, according to Denník N.

Suchodolinský revealed himself 2.5 years ago and fought for investigation of the case, Denník N wrote.
