Whether the analysis of the business network of the Musar spouses was ordered by Robert Golob or not – this is now a question, the answer to which is not the most important. What is more important is that all the statements in the aforementioned analysis are true – after all, other media have written about this before, even the Necenzuirano portal, which turned the tables after the first round of the presidential elections. It is also more important that the Government of the Republic of Slovenia responded to the publication of the analysis of the business network – which means that the news will continue to circulate in the mainstream media. Who, of course, kept silent about the disclosure of Požareport and other critical media.
“Dr Robert Golob never commissioned any analysis of Nataša Pirc Musar’s or her spouse’s business. It is another in a series of lies and manipulations that are gaining strength before elections and referendums and strengthen our determination to oppose fake news and hate speech,” the Prime Minister’s Office announced, adding that the Prime Minister is focusing his efforts on connecting and the cooperation of political actors of the left centre and such lies and attempts to discredit him will not deter him from this. “He is channelling his energies into undemocratic moves, where he publicly promises to prevent the victory of the legitimate candidate Anže Logar with a coalition. Golob and the entire government is ripe for interpellation. Incompetent, corrupt people who think that the mandate gave them the right to trample on the will of the people,” one of the network users responded to the government of the Republic of Slovenia.
Yesterday, Bojan Požar published a study revealing the business insides of the Musar family – it was allegedly commissioned by Golob, in case Nataša Pirc Musar and Milan Brglez were to make it to the second round of the election. That there were changes to the plan after the result of the first round is also evident from the almost official portal of Golob’s government, Necenzurirano. As recently as October 19th, they published an article in which they traced the money of the Musar spouses and found that they also got it through the financial exhaustion of companies – both in Slovenia and in the countries of the former Yugoslavia. In several articles, they published practically the same data as is also found in the analysis in question, yet yesterday they wrote: “The lying 0.88% of politicians certainly know very well that the document is being circulated around by the headquarters of the SDS candidate and that it was very likely helped written by Rado Pezdir. But he deliberately keeps it quiet because he prefers to manipulate.”
“The document published in Požareport was created by itself. It wrote and drew and equipped itself with graphs. Then it went out into the wide world. Kind of like the universe. Golob says one thing, does another, and most likely thinks a third, if: if he thinks,” commented the vice-dean of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Dr Boštjan M. Turk and reminded that Golob also denied that Vesna Vuković from the company Gen-i was transferred around 100 thousand euros. Of course, the information turned out to be true, but the current publicist of Gibanje Svoboda party has not yet explained what the money was for – although she promised. “Our nation keeps the evidence. In other words: the money was transferred by itself: it decided and went from one transaction account to another. Made a nice spring promenade,” wrote Turk. Well, considering that November takes care of staff recruitment in Slovenia, even Turk’s scenario is not completely impossible.
Požar wrote that the history of journalism teaches us (also) the following: when official denials come, then – as a rule – we know that everything is true. “It will again be a common embarrassment for the majority media, which do not report on it. Namely, they will now be forced to report that now Golob is denying, what they did not want to publish,” he commented, adding that it took almost two days for Golob’s government to deny. Someone else remembered Golob’s Romanian incident: “It was probably ordered by the same Golob, who allegedly opened and closed accounts in Romania. A completely different person!”
