What A Disgrace For The Justice Minister – She Was Once Again Glorifying Human Rights Violators

Minister of Justice Andreja Katič has once again been photographed in the company of people decorated with totalitarian symbols. She herself is also wearing a red star in the photo. This is not only opportunism for financial benefits and positions, but also exposes the misery of a Justice Minister who glorifies the mass violation of human rights – which is what the partisan movement and the former communist regime represent.

The leader of the opposition, Janez Janša, pointed out that Minister Katič had already done the same in 2019 and that the same approach is being taken by the new left-wing government.

“Here you have the current Minister of Justice, Ms Andreja Katič, enjoying the company of an armed troop of a paramilitary communist veterans’ organisation that glorifies the totalitarian regime and the former Yugoslav mass murderer Josip Broz Tito. In the middle of the European Union, AD 2019,” Janša wrote at the time.

It is also worth noting that the ruling Freedom Movement party (Gibanje Svoboda) recently submitted an amendment to the Law on the Protection of Public Order for coalition coordination, which bans the glorification of Nazism and fascism and such organisations from the Second World War on Slovenian territory. It would also ban the glorification of the Home Guard.


While fascism and Nazism have long been condemned by the public, and there are relatively few people who worship them, on the other hand, communism, a criminal system that still exists today in many countries and still brings new victims (for example, the priest who was beaten with a bat in Cuba), is allowed to be worshipped. We even have an annual concert that glorifies the criminal communist symbolism.

This is a deliberate provocation. At the same time, it is ‘profit partisanship’, which benefits and brings positions to the transitional left. The person who knows this best is the comradely turbo-capitalist Zoran Janković, who has his “euros flying to his pockets” to the rhythm of the partisan song “Hej Brigade!”, while at the same time fantasising about the end of capitalism.
