Friday protesters file criminal complaint against Janša

Ljubljana – Anti-government protestors gathered in Republic Square in Ljubljana on Friday evening, announcing they had filed a criminal complaint over corruption against PM Janez Janša earlier in the day, to coincide with his birthday.

Every Janša government has been marked by corruption and nepotism, which has reached new dimensions in the last year and a half, said the Protest People’s Assembly, as the organisers term themselves.

Referring to the recently published photos of Janša and lobbyist Božo Dimnik and businessman Andrej Marčič, the group said Janša abused power for its own interests and for lucrative deals of his friends.

The group also said it will not use violence to fight against this practice but it will use use all legal means available.
