Bratislava, January 16 (TASR) – The controversial entrepreneur due to legal reasons identified only as Marian K., who is currently in tightened custody in the so-called case of TV promissory notes, will be interviewed in the case of an alleged conspiracy to murder First Deputy Prosecutor-General Peter Sufliarsky, TASR learnt on Wednesday.

“I’ve never had a close – family, friendly, hostile, property or financial – relationship with this person [Marian K.],” Sufliarsky told a briefing on Wednesday. Marian K. and other people will be interrogated on the basis of Sufliarsky’s proposal. He does not know who would like to kill him, he’s been thinking about it for about six months. Sufliarsky refused to say whether a woman identified due to legal reasons only as Alena Zs., charged in connection with the murders of journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kusnirova, will be interviewed as well. He did not even say whether the persons proposed for interrogations are currently in custody.
In this context, Sufliarsky has contacted the investigator twice. He once looked into the file and became acquainted with it. “I learnt the information based on which I filed a written proposal to carry out interviews with several persons who can clarify the modus operandi and the way of my planned killing,” said Sufliarsky. “I’ve never acted in favour of this person in any criminal case,” emphasised the first deputy prosecutor-general. All the criminal matters, including those of journalists Adam V., Monika T. and deceased journalist Jan Kuciak, were “concluded to the detriment of this person”. According to Sufliarsky, the results of his work, which led to the prosecution of Marian K. in custody, could have been the motive for plotting his murder.
Sufliarsky met Marian K. at the Prosecutor’s Office no more than twice, always in the office of the then prosecutor-general Dobroslav Trnka, without knowing in advance who would be present at the meeting.
