Hundreds of people gathered in Bratislava on Friday, on the second anniversary of the murder of investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiance Martina Kusnirova.
The gathering was reportedly organised by the initiative 'For a Decent Slovakia'.
Parents of the murdered Kuciak and Kusnirova appeared on the stage during the gathering.
«They planned a wedding and a future together, which does... Еще not exist for them anymore. As a society we must never allow for this to happen again,» said Karolina Farska, of initiative 'For a Decent Slovakia'.
Writer Daniel Pastircak said «They wanted to silence the truth. But they awaken the truth with that murder.»
Kuciak and Kusnirova were shot dead at their home in February, 2018. Kuciak was investigating alleged relationships between the Italian mafia and former Prime Minister Robert Fico's party, Direction — Social Democracy (SMER). Kuciak was also investigating tax fraud of the Slovak business elite.
