Two authors leave Slovenian PEN

Ljubljana, 11 December - Authors and journalists Bernard Nežmah and Mimi Podkrižnik have withdrawn from the Slovenian PEN management committee. Nežmah said the centre had "zero respect for intellectual debate that would enable a fruitful formulation of joint statements". Podkrižnik told the STA that she "does not want to agree to a black and white discourse".
