The Legacy of Ján Kuciak: OCCRP Journalists Discuss the Work of Their Slain Slovak Colleague
You’re invited to join a webinar commemorating the fifth anniversary of the murder of Slovak journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kušnírová . It will be held on February 22, 2023, at 16:00 CET / 10:00 EST.
Slovak journalist Ján Kuciak, who worked with OCCRP members on a number of investigations, covered one of the most dangerous beats in journalism: The nexus between political corruption and organized crime.
When he was murdered on February 21, 2018, along with his fiancee, Martina Kušnírová, our network leapt into action to expose their killers and continue the reporting Jan was unable to complete. In the past five years, OCCRP has:
- Published an award-winning investigation about the alleged mastermind of the assassinations.
- Expanded on Jan's reporting in other investigations, including on Italian organized crime.
- Opened the Kočner Library in Bratislava, where journalists can access over 70 terabytes of records related to the police investigation into the murders.
- Produced a documentary about the corruption that allowed the accused killer to act with impunity for years.
OCCRP’s Central Europe Editor Pavla Holcová and Investigace.cz reporter Eva Kubániová — both of whom worked with Kuciak — will discuss the Slovak journalist’s legacy in a live discussion moderated by Ilya Lozovsky, a senior OCCRP editor.
The one-hour virtual event, which will include time for the audience to ask questions, will be held on:
