Text messages have been circulating behind the scenes in recent days that prove interference in the investigation, said chair of the opposition party Hlas Peter Pellegrini.
He mentioned a text message detailing the testimony in the case of former chair of the Criminal Unit of the Financial Administration Ľudovít Makó. Pellegrini suggested that these are instructions on how somebody should testify.
“This information would have been given to the cooperating accused so they know how to testify,” Pellegrini claimed, adding that he does not know whether the text message is authentic.Read more
Police Corps President Peter Kovařík denied these claims and pointed out that Pellegrini’s dates do not match.
The message was sent by investigator Ján Čurilla, according to Pellegrini, to an officer who worked on the case. He sent it on August 22, 2020, so only two days after the interrogation that he was supposed to influence, according to Pellegrini.
