One of the investigators that has been investigating the murder of Ján Kuciak and Martina Kušnírová left the team after his name appeared in the transcripts of the decoded communication of Marian Kočner.

The Aktuality.sk website reported that the investigator of the national financial police unit led the Novinár (Journalist) team that emerged in January 2019 to deal with cases that the murdered journalist Ján Kuciak wrote about.

The name of this investigator has appeared in the communication between Kočner and Bödör that the police gained from Marian Kočner's phone after decoding messages with the help of the Europol.

The police inspectorate confirmed earlier that they are investigating several police officers due to the messages between Kočner and Bödör, including allegations about the screening of journalists. The two men also messaged about the published media reports on the murder, the situation at the police and the Slovak Information Service (SIS), and the manipulation of criminal prosecution through police officers and prosecutors, Denník N wrote.
