Unless Slovakia possesses genuine independence in law enforcement, it cannot combat high-level corruption.
The EU’s top prosecutor Laura Codruţu Kövesi said so during her visit to Bratislava on February 18. She met with President Zuzana Čaputová and students during a debate at Comenius University in Bratislava, as reported by the SITA newswire.
Kövesi, Romanian, was appointed as the European Chief Prosecutor in mid-October 2019. “I remember a letter signed by Ján Kuciak’s family supporting my candidacy,” Kövesi said, as quoted SITA.
That letter was one of the crucial moments why she decided to run, she said.
