In late February 2018, Jan Kuciak, a young Slovak investigative journalist, was murdered by a single bullet. His fiancée was killed alongside him.
Before his death, Kuciak had been working with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and his outlet, Aktuality.sk, on an in-depth investigation about the Italian ‘Ndrangheta, one of the world’s most powerful and fearsome criminal groups, and their infiltration into his country.
His reporting — now forever unfinished — was carried out in collaboration with two OCCRP partners: the Czech Center for Investigative Journalism (CCIJ) and the Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI).
Jan’s final stories, published to honor his memory, set the record straight, and minimize the danger to his colleagues, appear in the OCCRP website.
