Krajmer left his post as NAKA’s anti-corruption unit head last year, after the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová. He was criticised for his presence at the crime scene at the beginning of the investigation, even though the crime did not fall within the scope of his job.

Shortly after leaving NAKA, he worked as a head of the prevention and communication department at the Police Corps Presidium, and since September 1, 2018 he has worked at the Interior Ministry, TASR reported.
