The Vice-Chairman of the European Commission and Commissioner for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova criticized Slovenian Prime Minister Janetz Janša’s attitude towards the media in an interview on the Brussels portal EurActiv.
Qorova said in a talk on the status of European public media: “It is clear that Prime Minister Giança did not pay enough attention to Slovenia’s international reputation. Considering that he himself had served as a journalist, his personal attacks on individual journalists were a warning. Surprising.” Slovenian media reported that there are still these problems, as well as their sustainable financing.
Taking Slovenia as an example, she specifically mentioned the issue of funding the Slovenian News Agency (STA). The Yansha government has consistently refused to pay budget funds for public reporting services for three and a half months, which threatens its 30-year survival.
Jourova believes that the sustainable financing of the Slovenian public media is threatened and has taken a step in the wrong direction and communicated it to her Slovenian interlocutor. She has received many warnings and letters about what is happening in the Slovenian media. Ask her to take action. Intervention.
