Murder of the young Slovak investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his companion


The savage murder of the young Slovak  investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his companion is not just terrible inexpressible attack  in the freedom of the press but it also casts alarming shadow over the politics and society of the member states of the video. We hope that the investigations of the Slovak justice system will find very soon murders and  possible principals. Such a disquieting fact must be considered not just a national  case but also European one and  the European institutions must follow with all their means the situation in order to understand what is happening in an EU member states. While strongly condemning the murder, the European Journalists Association-The Communication Network (EJ) feels very close to the family of the two victims, sharing the present state of mind and concern for the future of the freedom of the press of the Slovak colleagues.
