Default Reporter Slovakia murdered for exposing Mafia links

On 26 February, 27-year-old investigative reporter Ján Kuciak and his fiancée, Martina Kusnírová, were found shot dead in their home in Slovakia.
It’s suspected that Ján Kuciak was murdered for exposing mafia links to the political elite of Slovakia. Kuciak’s last story shows that criminal clans from Italy infiltrated Slovakia and developed close ties with politicians to launder money, evade taxes and get millions of Euros in agricultural and energy subsidies from the EU.

Kuciak detailed that Slovakian prime minister, Robert Fico, hired Mária Trosková, then a 27-year-old former topless model and Miss Universe contestant in 2007. Trosková had earlier been recruited to work for Member of Parliament Viliam Jasan (of Fico’s ruling Smer Party).
Trosková had been a business partner of Antonino Vadala, an Italian living in Slovakia with close ties to the Italian mafia organisation - ‘Ndrangheta. In August 2011, Vadala and Trosková founded the Slovak company GIA Management. Trosková left the company after a year and after another 3 years was hired by Fico.
Vadala owns agricultural companies in the east of Slovakia. Kuciak discovered that Italian prosecutors accused Vadala as a participant in cocaine smuggling by 5 ‘Ndrangheta crime families.

We don’t have to worry that unexpected scandals will be exposed, as Scotland Yard, the FBI and other foreign agencies assist the Slovakian authorities with the “investigation”.
Reporters will think twice before digging too deep into this scandal: https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...rter-shot-dead

When Vadala faced charges in Italy, he eloped to Eastern Slovakia.

Jasan explained to the media that he hired Trosková on the recommendation of an unnamed friend (probably Vadala). In March 2015, after less than a year, she left Jasan’s office to work for then PM Fico at the Government Office. A year later, Jasan joined her there when Fico named him director of the office and secretary of the State Security Council.
Jasan and Vadala had cooperated in several business activities. Jasan owned private security company Prodest that was bought by Vadala and his associates. Jasan's son Slavomír is still in a joint venture with the Italians called AVJ Real.

In the last 2 years, Smer was charged with covering up the tax frauds of businessman Ladislav Basternák, who was in business with interior minister Robert Kalinák.
Former minister of economy Pavol Rusko referred to Vadala as an "energy entrepreneur". Rusko is accused of ordering murder. Rusko met Vadala through chief state councillor Mária Trosková.

In February 2003, the Italian court sentenced 9 defendants of the Libri clan (one of the most powerful within the ‘Ndrangheta). Among the accused was Antonino Vadala.
In 2017, members of Antonino Vadala's family were amongst 18 gang members prosecuted for smuggling hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into Europe for 'Ndrangheta.
Antonino Vadala was directly involved in tax fraud in Slovakia. Palombi said that Vadala advised him to transfer real estate to AV - Real via Genna Ltd in a scheme to evade taxes.
Antonino’s relative Sebastiano Vadala, was prosecuted by the Trebisov district court for extortion. According to the Prosecutor, Vadala threatened to murder somebody that didn’t want to cooperate. Sebastiano was eventually cleared of all charges.

Apart from the Vadalas and the Cinnantes, also the Rods and Catropoves families are active in Slovakia. In 2015 and 2016, the companies these families control received more than 8 million Euros from the Agricultural Payments Agency (PPA).
From 2012 to 2017, 3 companies of the Diego Roda family alone received € 8.3 million in agriculture subsidies.

Fourteen years ago, the Italian Carmine Cinnante arrived in Slovakia. A few months later the Italian police arrested him for smuggling weapons to Italy for the Mafia boss Guirin Iona Ndrangheta.
Carmine Cinnante is also a member of this crime organisation. Money laundering is the main business of ‘Ndrangheta also abroad: https://spectator.sme.sk/c/20770432/...-politics.html

This case reminds me of the murder of the Maltese reporter, blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia: https://forum.davidicke.com/showthread.php?t=319261

What a stupid move!
On 15 March, shortly after my post about the murder of the Slovak reporter, Slovak PM Robert Fico resigned, after 2 ½ weeks of mass demonstrations.

President Andrej Kiska had said that Slovakia needed either a deep restructuring of the government or new elections. On 14 March, Fico said at a news conference that he had offered Kiska “to solve the political crisis by resigning my post as prime minister”.
Peter Pellegrini, former speaker of the Parliament who was deputy prime minister, will now become PM.

So Fico resigned, to prevent new elections and the ruling SMER Party can remain in power?!?

Earlier this week, interior minister Robert Kalinak resigned. Kalinak oversaw the police, and protesters say that it wouldn’t be possible to have a thorough investigation of the murders with him overseeing this.
The justice minister and culture minister, and other officials, will also be replaced.

To add to the discontent in Slovakia, on 15 March, another journalist, Lukas Milan, was sentenced in a defamation lawsuit to either 18 months in prison or a three-year probation during which he would be banned from journalism.
Milan will appeal the judgement.
The case stemmed from a magazine article in which Milan showed the corruption of high government officials: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/15/w...an-kuciak.html

Fico had been prime minister for 10 of the past 12 years.
His position became untenable after one of his coalition partners announced this week that it would support early elections unless he went.
President Andrej Kiska mandated Peter Pellegrini to form a new government.

Fico will remain Smer chairman.
Editor of Slovakian newspaper Denník N, Matús Kostolný, said he expects the street protests to continue:
Quote:
Fico has left office, but will remain in power.
The question is whether people will be satisfied with his departure, or whether they will continue to fight the system he left behind.
In a strange twist, earlier this month, Fico accused Kiska of colluding with Rothschild agent George Soros to bring down his government after a public broadcast by the president: https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...rnalist-murder

They can use these kind of tricks in West Europe, where people simply believe that the government isn´t corrupt, because the state media tells them.
But don´t expect that the people in Slovakia will be fooled that easily…

Seven months after Slovak investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kusnirova were assassinated, in February, in what's believed to have been by contract killers that were hired by an organised crime group with close ties to the Slovakian government; the police announced that it arrested suspects in the premeditated murder.
Local media reported that 8 people are held. Lawyer Daniel Lipsic said that there is enough evidence to keep the suspects in custody.

In his last story, Kuciak linked corrupt government officials, including then Prime Minister Robert Fico, to members of the 'Ndrangheta, an organised crime group based in South Italy. Two Slovaks involved with 'Ndrangheta were working in Fico's office.

The murders were followed by massive protests for weeks with thousands of Slovaks demanding justice.
Fico, his interior minister Robert Kalinak, police chief Tibor Gaspar and the (other) 2 Slovaks were forced to resign.
All have denied connections to the murder or connections to organised crime.
Their former Italian business partner also denied having connections to the mafia and the murder but was detained on a European drug trafficking warrant in March and extradited to Italy in May.

However, Fico’s government coalition has remained in power under Smer’s Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini. Fico still leads the ruling Smer party as if nothing happened: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-s...KCN1M70LP?il=0
