The criminal complaint against the organisers was submitted in October 2018, claiming that there are suspicions of both a coup attempt and corruption and that the organisers are paid by the Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist George Soros.

The National Criminal Agency (NAKA) invited the organisers to hearings where they were asked about finances and their bank accounts. The organisers considered the process to be one of bullying and intimidation, while the police claimed that they were only investigating corruption allegations and hearing from the people who were allegedly harmed.

However, such arguments did not work, particularly after the media reported on the interrogations. Then-NAKA head, Peter Hraško, even lost his post as he failed to precisely inform acting Police Corps President Milan Lučanský.
