Left leader does not regret calling far-right politician fascist

Ljubljana, 21 June - Luka Mesec, the leader of the Left, expressed no remorse in court Friday as he pleaded not guilty to defamation charges brought by Bernard Brščič, leader of the far-right Homeland League. "Describing Brščič as a fascist was not defamatory, it was a political description of his actions," Mesec said on arrival at the court.
