New Anti-Corruption Commission Deputies Resign

Ljubljana, 11 March - The recently appointed deputy presidents of the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption, Jurij Ferme and Darko Stare, handed in their resignations on Tuesday, less than a week after they were appointed by President Borut Pahor in what has turned out to be a highly controversial staffing decision.
