One of the witnesses on the stand was the ex-wife of Pavol Rusko, another defendant in the case.
Viera Rusková confirmed that she knew about the promissory notes, which she considered “extortion money” demanded by Kočner. She claims she recommended that Rusko, her ex-husband, sign the promissory notes to be done with the affair.
