FOI: When Slovak reporter Jan Kuciak was killed this winter, his colleagues in the OCCRP network found out that an FOI request may have given his killers a lead. Until this moment, using the FOI was a comparably safe journalistic method, unlike for example leaks, after which journalists' homes and newsrooms have been raided in the search for the whistleblower’s identity. Does the Slovak case teach us something different? In Hungary journalists experience how FOI laws narrow the possibilities of the press as requesters are asked to pay for getting information, which many particularly small and independent media cannot afford.
