A broadcast journalist who had been investigating alleged corruption involving EuropeanUnion funds has been found raped and murdered, but it is unclear whether her death is in connection with her work.
Ms Marinova was a director at TVN, a small TV station in Ruse, and presented two investigative programs. In response to the charges, the Bulgarian government said Ezekiev and Dimitrova both had the right to take their case to court, but did not specify whether it had taken any action to protect them or press freedom. Attila Biro, editor of the Romanian investigative website Rise Project, and Dimitar Stoyanov, of the Bulgarian site Bivol, were arrested in the Sofia suburb of Pernik on 14 September and held for six hours. "We expect a swift and thorough investigation to bring those responsible to justice", the European Commission, the European Union's executive said in a tweet.
