THE INVESTIGATION INTO MARIAN KOČNER – ONE OF THE MOST WEALTHY AND POWERFUL BUSINESSMEN IN SLOVAKIA

On 21 February, OCCRP carried an amazing article about Marian Kočner – now the main defendant in a high-profile trial that has gripped Slovakia since December. He is charged with ordering the brutal murder of a young investigative journalist who had been reporting on corrupt Slovak politicians, Italian mafiosi — and Kočner himself.  Amongst the allegations made is that Kočner has kept himself above the law by oiling the justice system of Slovakia’s fragile young democracy with cash and kompromat.
