Slovak Authorities Seize Phone Of Murdered Journalists Colleague


BRATISLAVA – Slovakian authorities said on Wednesday they have taken the cell phone of a colleague of a journalist whose murder in February sparked mass protests that forced the government to resign.

Journalist groups on Wednesday condemned what they said was the police confiscation of Czech reporter Pavla Holcova’s phone.

Holcova said in February she may have been one of the last people to talk by phone to Slovak investigative journalist Jan Kuciak before he and his fiancée, both 27, were shot dead in their home outside Bratislava.
