Conference Looking at Erasure 16 Years On

Ljubljana, 3 December - People who did not opt to take Slovenian citizenship after Slovenia broke independent in 1991, but were permanent residents of the country were denied the right to choose and were ousted collectively and without a warning. That is how the head of the Peace Institute, Lev Kreft, summarised the issue of the erased at a conference on Wednesday.
