Marinova had recently launched her own news talk show called “Detector.” In the first episode, she interviewed two investigative reporters who were recently arrested while looking into corruption involving the misuse of EU funds.
The two journalists — Attila Biro of the Romanian Rise Project, and Dimitar Stoyanov, a reporter for Bivol.bg — had uncovered “large-scale and wide-spread corruption” in EU-funded projects in Bulgaria worth hundreds of millions of Bulgarian leva, the European Council said.

Ricardo Gutiérrez, head of the European Federation of Journalists, called for enhanced protections for journalists across Europe.

Bulgarian mafia still alive and kicking. They operate with similar impunity to the Mexican drug cartels. What's the bet her killers were never brought to book?

I wouldn't be surprised if higher ups in government are involved.

A 21-year-old has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the rape and murder of a Bulgarian TV presenter.

Viktoria Marinova, 30, was killed by Severin Krasimirov while jogging in the city of Ruse on 6 October last year.

Prosecutors, however, found that her murder was a sexual assault apparently carried out at random, and was unconnected to her work.

Krasimirov pleaded guilty to the crime, agreeing to an expedited procedure, and avoided a life sentence.

Clean & neat solution?
