Drew Sulllivan on Jan Kusiak murder: ‘I’m afraid we’re going to lose more journalists’


Rallies have taken place across Slovakia again today to honour an investigative journalist who was murdered along with his girlfriend at the weekend.

Jan Kusiak had been working on a report about a a group of Italian businessmen based in Slovakia, including allegations that they were connected to a powerful organised crime syndicate in Italy, and had contacts with figures close to the Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico.

A number of Italian businessmen were arrested in Slovakia yesterday. I spoke to Drew Sullivan, one of Jan’s colleagues.
