The murder of investigative reporter Jan Kuciak sparked mass protests across Slovakia, forcing the departure of the then prime minister. The murder case has also put a spotlight on the role of Slovak police.
A court in Slovakia on Sunday ordered four people charged with the murder of investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancee, Martina Kusnirova, to be kept in jail until their trial.
His final story, which was published after his death, exposed links between Slovak officials, mainly from the ruling SMER party, and Italian families with connections to the Calabrian mafia.
The case, which has dragged on for months, has also cast a spotlight on the role of the Slovak police: They have been accused of destroying evidence, lack of transparency and inappropriately investigating Kuciak's peers.
