Marian Kočner rejected any connection between himself and the 2018 murder of Ján Kuciak and Martina Kušnírová during the trial session that was held in Pezinok on June 17.
Kočner faces charges of ordering the murder of investigative reporter Ján Kuciak, who was killed in his house in western Slovakia in February 2018 together with his fiancée Martina Kušnírová.
"I have ordered no murder and I have nothing to do with it," Kočner, who had previously rejected to comment, told the court, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
