They fought against totalitarian regimes, police brutality and land fraud. Four people were awarded for their courage with the Biela Vrana (White Crow) on November 17.
"With a symbolic feather, we have informally thanked the individuals and civic initiatives who, during the key milestones of our young democracy, stood consistently on the side of the law and public interest, and thus prevented our country from slipping back down to unfreedom," said White Crow award Council member Zuzana Wienk.
This year, the laureates are:
Mária Sisáková, a pensioner from the village of Zbudza village near Michalovce. She pointed out suspicious transfers of lands that her neighbours lost.
