Slovakia should adopt several steps in order to be more efficient in eliminating corruption. This stems from the recent evaluation report issued by the Council of Europe's anti-corruption group (GRECO).
It suggests that a number of steps should be applied urgently when it comes to top posts in government, as well as the work of police forces.
“Decisive steps must also be taken to ensure that the protection of whistleblowers from within the police becomes really effective in practice,” the report reads.
The findings were put together on the basis of the mass protests in Slovakia after the murders of the investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová in 2018. People have demanded more transparency in investigation, the accountability of politicians, and rooting out corruption.
