On the 22nd of February, a young investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his girlfriend Martina Kušnirová had been murdered by an unknown perpetrator. The Member Organisation of OBESSU in Slovakia - Stredoškolská študentská únia Slovenska (SUS) - sees it as a direct attack on democracy and freedom of the press. This event has a direct impact on socio-political processes happening in the country. As the biggest school student union, SUS is calling for a transparent investigation of this horrific act in presence of international investigation teams. The Board of OBESSU supports this claim and congratulates our Member in raising their voice in defence of democracy.
