Ján Kuciak (17/5/1990 – 21/2/2018) was a Slovakian journalist, shot to death in his house with his girlfriend, Martina Kušnírová (4/4/1990 – 21/2/2018).
The murder of Kuciak is related to his investigative activity on fiscal fraud by different businessmen connected to Slovakian politicians, on widespread corruption and Slovakian connections of ‘ndrangheta.
Indeed, the Slovakian judiciary has sentenced four people for premeditated murder: the oligarch and businessman Marian Kocner, considered to be the instigator, and the three actual perpetrators. A fifth man pled guilty to complicity and negotiated a plea bargain. The murder of Ján and Martina raised many reactions by Slovakian public opinion, popular demonstrations and a real political crisis that ended with the resignation of the nationalist Prime Minister Robert Fico, that, according to Kuciak investigations, was linked to ‘ndrangheta.
