This is great news for the Central European region. Romania has been making decent progress with rooting out corruption too, surprisingly.

Um, is she busy in 2020? By then, I’m sure the repubs will have thoroughly dismantled the Constitution, so that little thing about having to be a natural born citizen won’t matter (and we could sure use her).

Please correct a typo in your article. The name of assassinated journalist is “Jan Kuciak” and not “Jan Kucia” - the name is misspelled in the article you are quoting.
Also please correct “visit a shrine to Kucia and her fiance” to “his fiancée”. Jan Kuciak was male and he had finance Martina Kušnírova.

By the way, the assassins are already behind the bars and the person who allegedly ordered the murder is being investigated behind the bars because of other allegations. The investigation isn’t over yet, there are other suspects - like Italian mafia that started various activities in Eastern Slovakia. Kuciak also wrote about them.
