Prime Minister of Slovenia, Janez Janša and opposition leader Zoran Janković deny corruption!
The Commission for the Prevention of Corruption of the Republic of Slovenia is an independent state body, like the human rights Ombudsman, Information Commissioner or the Court of Audit, with a broad mandate in the field of preventing and investigating corruption, breaches of ethics and integrity of public office.

Janez Janša, the Prime Minister of Slovenia claims his innocence, despite failing to prove his income over the last years. The Commission says, that he spent almost twice the money he earned, made suspicious transactions, being a sponsor etc., the sum totalling to about 210.000 €. But this isn't all, the commission also noted that he has obtained a real-estate gain of 100.000 € linked with corruption risks and suspicion of abuse of authority by which he damaged a private company.
Zoran Janković, Slovenia's largest oppositon party PS leader, is also in trouble. The Commission claims he can't tell them where the mysterious 2,4 million Euros came from.
The Commission requires up-to-date information on any changes of assets of public authorities.
They both claim innocence. Prime Minister Janša said that he has been working for the past 30 years and so claims his innocence. However it's a little different with the opposition leader Janković. He claims that he did notify the Commission of the loan he gave to a company. Later, that company started to return some money to him, totaling 2,4 Million Euros. Therefore there was no change in the size of his assests and consequently didn't feel the need to inform the CPC.
Right now there is another major event being organised against corruption, the so-called 2nd All Slovene rise of the people against political elites on January 11.
One thing is for sure. There are a lot of bad apples in our politics. We want democratic and corruption free country, where rule of law will be applied and used.
