We have added the reaction of General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár below.
Marian Kočner, a mobster who faces charges of ordering the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak, told his former friend Peter Tóth that he bribed General Prosecutor Jaromír Čižnár in the past.
Tóth, a journalist-turned-spy who also gathered information on journalists for Kočner, told investigators that Kočner told him how he used to bribe Čižnár when he served from 2004 to 2013 as a regional prosecutor in Bratislava, prior to being elected the General Prosecutor in 2012.
The police questioned Tóth in relation to the Búrka (Storm) case on April 22, within which several judges with links to Kočner have been charged with corruption.
