Thousands march for slain Slovak journalist who probed corruption

Bratislava (Slovakia), Mar 03 (ANI): Thousands marched in Bratislava and other Slovak cities on March 2 for slain investigative journalist Jan Kuciak. The marchers demanded swift action in response to the killing.

The murder has shocked the country and shaken its government. A banner read "An attack on journalists = an attack on all of us" and had pictures of the two victims.

Most protesters walked in silence and many carried candles. Kuciak reported on tax and subsidy fraud and links between businessmen and local politicians.

He had been looking into suspected mafia links among Italian businessmen in eastern Slovakia. Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova were found dead at their home before he could finish the article.
