Police continue to investigate the incident. Last week, Mr Teryngel was released from a one month spell in prison after he was convicted of seeking to influence witnesses involved in trials. He is also being investigated by anti-corruption police for alleged tax evasion in the realm of hundreds of millions of crowns.
