Slovenia : Justice has to be done for all the erased

Strasbourg, 19/10/2013 – In an opinion editorial, published today in the Slovene daily newspaper Delo, the Commissioner pointed to certain human rights priorities to be met while addressing the issue of the erased in Slovenia. He stressed that the current parliamentary discussion on the law on compensation for the erased should not only focus on compensation, but should broaden the scope of the law to provide full remedy for the human rights violations which occurred. In the Commissioner`s view, reparation should be ensured for all the erased and all who wish to do so should be allowed to reintegrate into the Slovene society.
