Slovakia: Tens of thousands demand reforms after journalist murder

Around 30,000 people gathered in the centre of Bratislava on Sunday to protest against corruption among country's public servants and to demand a fully-fledged police investigation into the murders of journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova. The political crisis sparked by the killings has already resulted into resignation of Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico and Interior... Еще Minister Robert Kalinak. However, the police president Tibor Gaspar, whose resignation people are also demanding, remains in office. He refused to quit even despite the recent scandal around Slovak crime boss Robert Okolicany who managed to flee the country after the Supreme Court sentenced him to life for several crimes including murder. Kuciak and Kusnirova were found shot dead on February 25. Kuciak had been investigating relationships between the Italian mafia and people working in Fico's office. Slovaks are saying the government has failed to tackle corruption previously and now demand a serious reconstruction of the government.
