Thousands marched in Bratislava and other Slovak cities on Friday for murdered investigative journalist Jan Kuciak, demanding swift action in response to a killing that has shocked the country and shaken its government.One of the men named in Kuciak's report, which probed potential abuse of EU subsidies and other fraud, had past links to people who subsequently worked for Prime Minister Robert Fico's office.The trail leading, however peripherally, from Kuciak's story to the government has put Fico and his Smer party -- which have ruled for 10 of the last 12 years -- in the spotlight.Fico once referred to journalists as "dirty, anti-Slovak prostitutes". But his government has offered a 1 million euro reward for information aiding the investigation into Kuciak's murder.
