Marinova, who in the week before her murder had reported on an investigation into alleged corruption by... Еще local politicians and businessmen involving EU funds, was found raped and murdered in a park in Ruse, near the river Danube on Saturday. Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov said that investigators weren't ruling out Marinova's recent investigation as the cause of her murder, saying «I can assure you that neither we or our colleagues from Ruse are excluding such a possibility.» Press freedom has been under attack in Bulgaria over the past decade according to Reporters Without Borders (RSF). Bulgaria is the lowest ranked EU member country in terms of press freedom, coming in at 111th in the Press Freedom Index. Bulgarian oligarchs are alleged to have colluded with publishers and political parties to create an atmosphere that threatens the existence of independent media and hides the misuse of EU and state funds.
