Public data available in the Erar application show that the money from the electricity from the Krško Nuclear Power Plant – GEN-I has an exclusive contract for the sale – ends up abroad. The former Prime Minister Janez Janša has already responded to the public disclosure of the data, who wrote on Twitter: “Proposal for an investigative commission that can investigate the outflow of state money from GEN-I to oases and private pockets (it is of course, not be expected from the police, the prosecution, the judiciary) was made already in May this year. Since then, we have been waiting in vain for the signatures of the Nova Slovenija party. 30 are needed.” He also shared the post showing a list of remittances from Slovenia to Albania and Ukraine.
Otherwise, the matter could be partially investigated by the Commission for the Control of Public Finances, which by law belongs to the opposition. According to logic and practice, leadership belongs to the largest opposition party, but the government coalition assigned it to Jernej Vrtovec. The results are known, Janez Janša also wrote. At the same time, it is interesting that Vrtovec, when he was still the Minister of Infrastructure, was the biggest proponent of replacing Robert Golob as the president of GEN-I. “Because of fraud, as he emphasised at the time,” they wrote in Moja Dolenjska.
The data was disclosed by the anonymous user Joséphin Beauharnais, who wrote that the collected data would reveal something completely different, namely that the money eventually flows into a tax haven: “Fuck from Erar stems that money from electricity from the nuclear plant, which is sold by GEN-I eventually ends up in Cyprus, 8 million every month. And Slovenia has to import electricity. Tomorrow we will announce the scheme with the owners,” the user wrote. In response to why the entire scheme has not yet been published, he added: “Because it is necessary to recalculate transactions from Erar between related parties with price transactions on the BSP electricity exchange, where GEN-I trades and sells, in order to get accurate numbers.”
The end of illusions about the Slovenian Steve Jobs of energy?
Slovenian media have already compared many left-wing politicians to foreign or domestic celebrities. Siol once declared Marjan Šarec as the Luka Dončič of Slovenian politics, just as they now compare Robert Golob with Steve Jobs. Šarec’s comparison with Dončič quickly failed, and Golob’s comparison with Jobs even faster. When the current Prime Minister took the reins in his own hands, electricity prices in Slovenia skyrocketed, so that they are now the highest in Europe. At the same time, there were rumours that GEN-I unwisely sold electricity abroad for the next year, which is why the citizens of Slovenia have to pay astronomical prices for electricity generated abroad. GEN-I blamed the war in Ukraine for the price increase at the first price hikes. Just to mention, Slovenia as a country is almost completely self-sufficient in electricity. On our soil, enough is produced to meet 85 percent of the state’s needs.
