Fewer Cars Stolen in Slovenia than in the West

Ljubljana, 12 October - As many as 348 vehicles were stolen in Slovenia in the first half of the year, a figure comparable to those in the past two years. 26 cars per 100,000 inhabitants are stolen in Slovenia on average, while developed European countries deal with much higher numbers. In Germany, the figure stands at 168 and in Denmark at 781. Furthermore, over 20 percent of such thefts are successfully solved in Slovenia, while European countries solve only 10 to 15 percent of such cases on average. The claims of some media that car thefts in Slovenia can no longer be controlled are therefore incorrect, said director of the criminal police administration Dusan Mohorko at a news conference on Thursday.
