Although the police on the evening of July 3 detained Norbert Bödör, an alleged Smer sponsor who has been in contact with mobster Marian Kočner according to the Threema messages found on the latter’s phone during the investigation of the Ján Kuciak murder, he did not spend much time behind bars.
The Specialised Criminal Court released him on July 5, dismissing the prosecutor’s proposal to take him into custody.
The prosecutor appealed the verdict, and the Supreme Court will discuss the appeal on July 9, the police wrote on Facebook.
