Slovenia: Further information: Claims to protester to pay costs of policing withdrawn

Following the recent elections and the change of government in Slovenia, the lawsuits against theatre director Jaša Jenull for covering the costs associated with policing of protests attended in 2020 were withdrawn by the Slovenian authorities. Jaša Jenull is among several peaceful protesters who faced exorbitant claims for compensation and lawsuits requiring them to pay for the costs of policing. Such claims are punitive in nature and aim at silencing people exercising their human rights. Requiring participants to pay for the costs of policing is a violation of people’s right to freedom of peaceful assembly.
