“Slovenia’s Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec says Slovenia is ready to file a lawsuit against Croatia over its refusal to recognize the border arbitration decision.

The lawsuit is ready and Slovenia’s government is expected to inform the European Commission about its intentions very soon, Karl Erajvec said on Tuesday in Ljubljana.

“Our ministry was tasked with preparing everything that was needed and and we have done so,” Erjavec told reporters after a meeting with Slovenia’s Human Rights Ombudswoman Vlasta Nussdorfer.

Erjavec said that Slovenia had worked with a French law firm and lawyer Alain Pellet in drafting the letter to the European Commission, which lays out the key arguments in Slovenia’s case against Croatia over the arbitration ruling. Pellet represented Slovenia in the arbitration process.” (Voice of Croatia)
