The outgoing Minister of the Interior, Tatjana Bobnar, informed the public of her version of the allegedly controversial events that led to her resignation.
Outgoing Interior Minister Tatjana Bobnar cites as one of the reasons for her announced resignation that Prime Minister Robert Golob did not want to confirm the members of her team.
The minister is about the appointment Boštjana Lindav to the post of Director General of Police with a full mandate with the Prime Minister Robert Golob already spoke on November 10 this year, at which time Golob should have made it clear to her that she should not even nominate him for a full term, as he did not meet expectations and did not pass “police purges”, claimed Bobnar. At the same time, Golob is said to have also proposed that by extending the status of Acting General Director of Lindav, he will be given another so-called trial period.
Bobnarjeva’s proposal for appointment was also not placed on the government’s agenda Slavka Koroša to the position of Director General of the Directorate for Police and Other Security Tasks with a full mandate, with the explanation that “maybe she wanted to have someone else in this place”. Bobnarjeva rejected such a proposal, but today she emphasized again in a statement to the media that Koroš is a top expert, who this week also presented the findings of an extraordinary control of the conduct of the police in protecting protests over the past two years.
After straining relations with Prime Minister Golob, Bobnarjevi offered, as an opportunity to restore trust, that from “the police fire a certain person”. The interior minister does not reveal who, but she asserted that it was not a person who was in any way connected to the conduct of the protests or who acted illegally in any way, nor did she get her position in the mandate of the government led by the SDS champion Janez Janša. “He obviously resented someone from the Prime Minister’s circle, this is actually just one of the pressures that show the tendency of politics to control the police,” she is sure.
At the same time, she reminded that the government set itself the task of acting professionally when it took office. “I am aware that I am in the position of Minister of the Interior, but I am first and foremost an expert in this field – and the Prime Minister specifically emphasized this upon my appointment,” she reminded. If these closest collaborators are determined by others, in the minister’s opinion, it is not possible to do her job well, which is why she diverges with the government.
As she also stated, she wanted the cooperation to end with a conversation, but it appeared in the public “so many unwarranted, unfair insinuations”he and Lindav had to respond. “Time always puts things in their place, and I’m sure it will be the same in this case,” at the same time, she is an optimistic minister.
On Wednesday, outgoing Minister Bobnar also submitted a report on political pressures to the Prime Minister, at the same time informing him that she will submit a written resignation statement after returning from her business trip to Brussels. As she said today, Bobnar also forwarded the aforementioned report to the State Prosecutor’s Office and the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption.
