The Slovenian public was shocked by another sex scandal in the last month, related to the ruling party Gibanje Svoboda. The partner of their prominent member Faila Pašić Bišić is suspected of raping a minor, which Faila obviously knew about, as she publicly admitted that she tried to help him and sent him to therapy instead of reporting him. Moreover, in one case, lawyer and presidential candidate Nataša Pirc Musar publicly defended her.
After Žan Mahnič’s tweet that Golob was “inviting to the elections in the company of the radical Islamist Faila Pašić”, Nataša Pirc Musar was recruited, and she became her representative. She said that Pašić is not radical and that she knows her as a woman who defends fundamental human rights, and that the tweet is an infringement on personal integrity. “I can only say that this is a criminal act”. We sent questions to Nataša Pirc Musar whether defending human rights also means concealing the rape of a partner and whether her law firm will defend her even now that she has admitted to the obvious concealment of the rapist’s criminal act. We are still waiting for answers.
“I tried to help him, I directed him to self-help groups and psychotherapy in order to make him realise that these things are unacceptable here,” Alnajjar’s (then) partner Faila Pašić told the Reporter. Admitting that she was clearly covering up a crime speaks volumes about her hypocrisy. She responded to Mahnič’s tweet that she had been devalued, dehumanised, and that it had to end. “It is also right that other victims of hate speech know the resources they can use to defend their good name,” added the ‘humanitarian’ Pašić. Did she consider the dehumanisation and devaluing of the victim of her partner’s rape?
The reporter also managed to speak with the victim’s friend. “How do you think this girl feels after he did this to her, and she sees him right next to the leaders of the Gibanje Svoboda party at their election celebration?” said a friend who also knows the sex offender personally. Meanwhile, Mustafa Alnajjar threatened the media with a lawsuit if his name was published. “I do not allow you to publish my name, otherwise a lawsuit will be filed against you. That is what I was told at the Čeferin law firm,” he said.
Let’s remind: 26-year-old Alnajjar, a Palestinian by birth, (he and his colleague Jaša Jenull together led/organised the protest) was in the party’s election headquarters on the day of the post-election celebration, although they were supposedly already aware of his crime in the party. Pašič Bišić, who worked in the electoral headquarters, was offered a job by Golob’s. It is especially scandalous that the accused is free all the time. Prosecutor Alenka Jesenko did not order him into custody. The rape is said to have happened right next to Pašić’s living quarters in Ljubljana. Will her law firm defend her even now that she has admitted to the obvious crime of protecting a rapist?
