The prosecution is one fine organisation – there you are guilty if you are innocent and also innocent if you are guilty. It is similar in the courts, except that they work a little more sophisticatedly there, and if the prosecution does not know how to charge enough, the court helps it. As in the case of Patria, when the head of the Supreme Court Branko Masleša looked inside Janez Janša’s head for a while to find a crime. This work of the judiciary has not yet been appropriately globally recognised. This is not a classic brain operation, but brain storming.
A few days ago, the decision of the district state prosecutor, Ksenija Bukovac, came to light, who dropped a criminal complaint against the head of the anti-corruption commission, Robert Šumi, for allegedly abusing his position or committing any other crime. The suspicion of a crime was written using 7,500 words, and the indictment was dismissed with less than 80 words. The prosecution has obviously used here – not the system there is honour among thieves – but a less is more system. Namely, the complaint had an introduction, a core and a conclusion, and the dismissal of the complaint had a conclusion.
Namely, General State Prosecutor Drago Šketa said some time ago that there is nothing above the prosecutor’s office but blue skies, especially because the prosecutor’s office is part of the judicial system. When he was allegedly attacked by legal authorities that the prosecution is a part of the executive branch, he fell silent and insisted on his own. If the Attorney General insists on his own, this is normal. But not necessarily.
Because in this country, the guilty are innocent and vice versa
Robert Šumi certainly did nothing wrong if he allowed his friend Tomaž Vesel, the head of the Court of Audit, to play money matches at FIFA in the amount of million euros. Namely, it is completely normal for our system that the supreme financial arbiter earns such money with afternoon crafts and does not have any permission for it. Where would we end up if our left wing boys and girls would have to ask someone for every dog shit if they can or cannot do it. They are not used to it, because it is also the heritage of proud successors. They did what was their will in the name of the people and for themselves. It should not be forgotten that Robert Šumi is a deeply honest being, especially when he said that Vesel does not have a piece of paper, but he can also have one, even though they do not have it at the anti-corruption commission, but they could have one but cannot find it.
Years ago, some crazy creature accused me of cheating him of 18 euros. One November night, the prosecution sent two plainclothes criminals to me to intimidate me a little and I chased them away. I apologise now. Then the police interrogated me for an hour, I handed over the evidence and the policeman said – we have to follow the prosecutor’s directive. Since I have not yet received a single sentence today, whether I am guilty or innocent, I am considered guilty. Because the prosecution does not inform its “accidental” victims. I think it did the right thing. Eighteen euros is not just a crime, but it is already eighteen times the crime, because Šumi said that one euro is already corruption. By the way, I am also formally guilty of corruption, because I have not been informed since the time of Drago Kos whether I was corrupt as a radio director or not. I think this is also right, because it is in line with the former regime tradition that we all bowed our heads when we met with the militiaman, because Tito once said that individuals are to blame – in spirit, or in body. It is right that a nation does not think it is innocent because then it is more careful about what it does and who it votes for.
Therefore, it is not criminal to shout “Death to Janša” in this direction, it is not criminal if an indictment against the wife of prosecutor Hinko Jenull is buried somewhere in the drawers, and it is not criminal if prosecutor Barbara Žgajnar forgot to file an indictment against someone who has something. Because in this country, the guilty are innocent and vice versa. The Trenta case is also a legal peculiarity, as it contradicts all the findings of the famous economist Samuelson about cannons and butter, who talked about something on supply and demand. The prosecution, as a branch of the “blue sky” government, has the sovereign right to interpret economic laws as it pleases. Samuelson would hang himself if he were still alive, however, our rule of law lives on.
What brings us harm, except Janša.
