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.
