EU’s top prosecutor recounts letter from family of slain journalist Ján Kuciak as key to her decision to run for office

Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.
