He also defended his friend, who was also mentioned in the records from the hunting lodge, on the press the same day. He reiterated that there had been a gross violation of Bödör’s rights.

In reality, however, the Constitutional Court did not say anything like that. The SME daily analyzed the court’s finding that Bödöra was released. It follows that a relatively inconspicuous procedural error helped the oligarch to freedom.
