Government responds: Truth Commission not necessary

On 28 March 2012 the Slovenian Government responded to the conclusion of the Commission for Petitions, Human Rights and Equal Opportunities(in Slovenian), which called upon the government to look into the proposals of Amnesty International Slovenia, the Peace Institute and the Association of Erased Residents of Slovenia for adoption of additional measures needed to remedy the violations. In its statement the Government did not respond to the majority of the proposals but it only summarized the legislation and provided some information on its implementation.

One of the few concrete responses referred to the recommendation for setting up a truth commission which would establish facts concerning the erasure and the role of each stakeholder in its implementation. The Government stated that the Constitutional Court already stated its opinion about the matter so any further investigation is unnecessary. The whole response of the government is available here.
