Since the end of May, rumors surrounding real estate agent Irena Marković have not been satisfied. She is said to have made the first contact between Gudenus and the supposed Russian oligarch. Yesterday she gave an exclusive interview for Puls 24.
The Viennese woman with Serbian roots is said to have acted as a middleman for the decoy in Ibiza. (KOSMO reported) The first contact with the wrong Russian was made via Marković, as the decoy stated that he wanted to move to Austria and buy a piece of land belonging to the Gudenus family.

“I was fooled,” quoted “Oe24” the real estate agent in May, who didn’t want to have anything to do with the cause at the time. Since then, her name has been associated with the alleged mastermind behind the Ibiza video, which is why there was much speculation about Marković’s complicity.
“I have nothing to hide”
Marković has now dared to make a public appearance because she wants to counteract many rumors. “I have nothing to hide,” added the real estate agent. In the exclusive Puls24 interview on Tuesday evening, she herself emphasized that Soko Ibiza only leads her as a witness and not as a suspect. At the same time, she denied any complicity in the creation of the Ibiza video.
“Although I am a mediator professionally, I never mediate a deception,” emphasized Marković in the interview. She sees herself more as a victim because she was used to lure the former FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache and FPÖ club chairman Gudenus into a trap.
Oligarch was unremarkable
“It looked very harmless to me,” said the broker about her first meeting with the alleged oligarch. She was very confident and spoke excellent English. Most of the time, the decoy is said to speak in Russian, which Marković did not understand.

Even in the behavior of the wrong Russian woman, she noticed nothing suspicious. At the third and last meeting, the broker visited a property belonging to the Gudenus family in Lower Austria. After that, they never met again.
The real estate agent from Vienna is known as a good acquaintance of the family, but did not know anything about the property before being contacted by the lawyer. Only after she was contacted by the alleged mastermind and who informed her about a prospect from Russia did she inquire about this at Gudenus.
Both the broker and the Gudenus family had been very interested in closing the deal. “Until the video was released, I never thought it could be a trap,” said Marković.
