Marián Kočner sold the flat in a residential complex built by the developer Ladislav Bašternák, connected in lobby rumours with the ruling Smer party and its top politicians.

The sale is not related to the fact that he is being investigated by the police, Kočner claimed, as quoted by the Aktuality.sk website.

The businessman sold his property to Erich Feix, the manager of Prvá Stavebná Sporiteľňa, a construction-saving institution, the real estate cadastre hints.

Recently, Kočner was accused by the police for the crime of violating duties when administering other people’s property, the Sme daily wrote. He is expected to be charged for suspicion of fraud soon.

Kočner told Aktuality.sk that the sale of the flat is unrelated to the police move; and later, he threatened Aktuality reporter Ján Kuciak that he would “try to find dirt” about his family and then publish it.

Kočner regularly insults and threatens journalists, Sme wrote, giving as an example a recent press conference in which he said he would establish a website publishing information on their private lives.
