Record number of asylum requests this year, only few approved

Ljubljana, 16 December - A record 4,568 asylum requests were filed from January through November this year. A total of 15 persons were granted asylum status. The reason for such a low share of approved requests is that a vast majority of asylum seekers during the period in question left Slovenia before the procedure was completed, the authorities said.
