The senate issued its decision upon a motion submitted by Justice Minister Gábor Gál (Most-Híd). He did so following recent reports on the conversation from the Threema app, which suggests that Jankovská might have tried to arrange things in favour of mobster Marian Kočner. She has refuted such claims.
