30 years after unlawful erasure, the erased to get apology

Ljubljana, 25 February - Saturday will mark 30 years since 25,671 people originating from former Yugoslav republics other than Slovenia were erased from the register of permanent residents of newly-independent Slovenia. The erasure was later found to be unlawful, and President Borut Pahor is expected to formally apologise for it at Presidential Palace on Friday.

Many erased persons would have their ID's destroyed when they approached various state bodies. Pictured is a cut ID on the cover of Erased (Izbrisana), a novel by Slovenian writer Miha Mazzini.
