She intends to raise the issue of media freedom and pluralism as well. Slovenia should not underestimate the risk to its international reputation when it comes to this, Johansson has told the STA.
Ljubljana – Slovenian and Croatian football legends played a charity match on Saturday in the Croatian town of Petrinja to raise funds for the area that was hit by a devastating earthquake at the end of last year.

Opposition parties in the Republika Srpska gathered in the Alliance for Victory on Wednesday requested an extraordinary session of the parliament of the mainly Serbian entity, claiming that the prosecution was intentionally delaying the investigation into the unresolved death of a 21-year-old student.
Bosnians have gathered for a protest rally over the unresolved case of David Dragicevic, the 21-year-old whose body was discovered in late March in shallow water in the river Crkvena.
Although police first said he most likely drowned, the fact that his body was covered in bruises fuelled suspicion about this version of events.
