Bulgarian Police Releases Romanian Held in Journalist's Murder Case
10 October 2018, 11:25 | Max Haynes
Candlelit vigils were held around the country
Bulgarian police have detained a suspect in connection with the killing of investigative journalist Viktoria Marinova, whose body was found in a park in her hometown of Ruse four days ago, a government source familiar with the investigation toldReuters on Tuesday.
Margaritis Schinas, spokesman for European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, said the commission expected "a swift and thorough investigation" that would "bring those responsible to justice and clarify whether this attack was linked to her work".
Bulgaria was under pressure Monday to find the killer of a television journalist whose brutal murder sparked worldwide condemnation, as mourners thronged candlelight vigils in the capital Sofia and the northern town of Ruse where she was killed.
A woman holds a candle next to a portrait of slain journalist Viktoria Marinova during a vigil at the Monument of Liberty in Ruse, Bulgaria, on Monday. "It is about rape and murder", he said said.
The 30-year-old victim, who had reported on an investigation into alleged corruption involving European Union funds, suffered blows to the head and had been suffocated.
The body of the 30-year-old journalist, who police said had been raped, beaten and suffocated, was found on Saturday.
Those details led to widespread speculation that Ms Marinova's death might have been linked to her work as a journalist.
She is the third journalist to be murdered in Europe in the past 12 months after Jan Kuciak in Slovakia in February and Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta in October 2017.
Marinova served as a member of the management team of the private television station TVN and hosted an investigative program.
While Marinova didn't appear to have been closely involved in the fraud investigation, her show touched on a sensitive subject in Bulgaria, where corruption is endemic. The journalists, Attila Biro and Dimitar Stoyanov, had been detained in September for their work. According to the Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index, Bulgaria ranks lower than other European Union member.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has condemned the "brutal" killing of investigative reporter Victoria Marinova, declaring it as outrageous.
Azoulay said: "Attacks on journalists erode the fundamental human right to freedom of expression and its corollaries, press freedom and free access to information".
