According to him, such an act did not even happen and it was invented by the Banská Bystrica boss Mikuláš Černák. He testified on Thursday before the Senate of the Bratislava II District Court, which is hearing the case.
He clarified that in the autumn of 1997 he went to see Miloš Kaštan at Černák’s company in Banská Bystrica. “Pavol Rusko and Černák were talking about a problem that Černák was supposed to solve,” he explained. According to him, Černák laughed that Pavol Rusko would definitely return once more and that he would be intimidated by the Pápayans and thus withdraw 10 million Slovak crowns from him.
“I have never heard the name Klaus-Volz be heard there during the meeting. As for the act of plotting her murder, I don’t know anything. Such an act did not even happen and Černák made it up. He broke Chestnut to cooperate because Chestane had previously been charged with five murders. At the beginning of 2018, Černák also tried to influence me when I met him on a walk in prison, “said Kromka. As he said, he did not know the former director of TV Markíza personally at that time.
“I had a normal relationship with Černák in 1997-1998. We have no relationship now. He became a penitent ‘scumbag,’ “he told the Prosecutor’s Office of the Special Prosecutor’s Office. He admitted that when investigators came to see him, he would also testify against Černák.
Klaus-Volz and Russia did not have a good relationship
A member of the Titan group Daniel Vaniš testified during the hearing that Sylvia Klaus-Volzová, whom he was guarding, did not have a good relationship with Pavel Rusk.
Vaniš was to be entrusted with the protection of the head of the criminal group of Titmouse Róbert Lališ and another barefoot of this group, the murdered Peter Čongrády. The witness had no information about the order for the murder of Klaus-Volz. “I only accompanied her on the way home and to work,” he said.
He described Klaus-Volz as pleasant and polite, sometimes she had a period when she was frightened and stressed. She did not deal with work and business matters before him.
“I know she was at a meeting with businessman Marian Kočner. We met two or three times with lawyer Ernest Valko. I don’t know what she was doing there. Chongrady told me to guard her so that nothing would happen to her, “he said. The reason was that Pavol Russia hired Russian-speaking security guards.
Vaniš was also in charge of protecting Kočner. A few years ago, he acted as a crown witness during a megaprocess with titmouse in the case of mafia murders. He knows Boss Mikuláš Černák and his aide Miloš Kaštan from newspapers and other media. He recognizes the accused Pavel Ruska from TV Markíza from the time when he worked for the injured party.
Of the four defendants, they only escorted convicted Pavel Rusk to Thursday’s trial in the case of television bills. The others agreed to their lawyers at the hearing in absentia.
In addition to Kromek and Vaniš, four other witnesses should testify. In the case of the preparation for the murder of Klaus-Volzová, the main defendant is Pavol Rusko, the barefoot group of titmouse Róbert Lališ, nicknamed Kýbel, Černák and his companion Kaštan.
