On 24 January 2019, the TAX3 Committee will hold a hearing on “Alleged financial crimes, tax evasion and tax avoidance in Slovakia”. Investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his partner Martina Kusnirova were shot dead in February in what was the first targeted killing of a reporter in the country's history. Mr Kuciak, who was 27 at the time of his murder, had been investigating alleged financial crimes and tax frauds.

The Committee has invited to this hearing the Slovak General Prosecutor's Office, the Financial Directorate of Slovakia, and an investigative journalist.
