Canadian-Slovak Chamber to aid journalist Nicholson

The president of the Canadian-Slovak Chamber of Commerce (KSOK) in Bratislava, Joseph M. Burza, announced a public fundraising to support Canadian-Slovak journalist Tom Nicholson, who has been writing a book about corruption in Slovakia and may face lawsuits from individuals and companies that have been mentioned in the so-called Gorilla file, the TASR newswire reported. Nicholson is a former editor-in-chief of The Slovak Spectator. According to the chamber’s spokesperson, the fundraising was sparked by the fact that many people had approached the chamber with an offer to financially support Nicholson. "All the expenses related to the promotion and account management are on the shoulders of KSOK," said the spokesperson, adding that Burza was the first contributor. More information about the fund-raising drive is available on the chamber’s website www.KSOK.sk.
