The Trial

As a photographer, spot news is something that I rarely cover, but now and then you simply feel the historical or pivotal significance of a particular event and you know that you have to be there and see for yourself what kind of truth is being served to the public these days.

National flag of Slovenia is being waved in front of the District Court in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

On the 5th of June the District Court in Ljubljana sentenced former Slovenian Prime Minister and opposition leader, Janez Janša, together with two other individuals, to prison sentences on corruption charges in what it was a highly controversial Kafkaesque trial that lasted three years. According to relevant legal experts, the case should have been dropped for the complete lack of evidence against Janša, presented by the prosecutor Andrej Ferlinc, a pattern of coincidences on the other hand also points out to the likely political motives behind the courts decision.
