Ljubljana – The outcome of a referendum on the right to abortion in the conservative US state of Kansas is not as surprising as it might seem initially, since it reaffirms what opinion polls have been saying all along, says Dnevnik on Thursday, highlighting that the divide on this issue is not as simple as the Republicans vs Democrats divide.
The defence lawyer for Veljko Papic, the wartime commander of the Third Company of the Bosnian Serb Army's Sarajevo-Romanija Corps' First Battalion, told BIRN that an appeal has been filed against the verdict jailing him for two years for crimes against the civilian population in Sarajevo in 1993 and 1994.
The prosecution has also appealed, asking for a longer sentence.
The Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) refused to prematurely terminate the mandate of the Prosecutor General. Only two of the members of the Supreme Court - Atanaska Disheva and Olga Kerelska - were "in favor" of the removal of Ivan Geshev, all the other 16 voted "against" and so he remains in his post. The Prosecutor General did not participate in the vote.
He said he respected the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade

Ljubljana – The Constitutional Court has rejected an appeal by former PM Janez Janša against the statute barring of the Patria defence deal bribery case. While Janša felt denied a chance to prove his innocence, the top court claims he had no legal interest, as statute barring is fully equivalent to an acquittal, meaning he is considered innocent.
