Slovenia: Prime Minister and Minister of Defense received death threats

Media in Slovenia reported on Sunday afternoon that Prime Minister Janez Janša and Defense Minister Matej Tonin on Friday received threats by mail, with live ammunition attached to letters. The offices of the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense later confirmed the threats.

As reported by the media, on Friday, Prime Minister Janez Janša and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Matej Tonin received envelopes containing death threats in their home addresses. As reported by the internet portal, the envelopes contain letters and bullets of a larger caliber. According to N1, two strangers came to Tonin’s house a week ago and said they were taking measurements for T2. It turned out that they were arrested during the recent protests due to the attack on the police officer.

According to the internet portal, Prime Minister Janez Janša also took a picture of him with a target drawn on the envelope.

An unknown sender also drew the targets in a photograph of his family. Above the photo was a warning that “teams are awaiting command”. He added that the prime minister “will fall first” and that the same fate will befall all supporters of his government. According to, police are already investigating the case.

Defense Minister Matthew Tonin confirmed to N1 that he had received a letter with a threat and a bullet of a larger caliber. The threat read, among other things: “You think the military will help you. You will not be when we judge you in a popular way. And that time will come soon. Straight to the head.”

The unknown sender also wrote that there would be no help for him and that he was recalculating which side would be better. “You will not expect the election to be able to choose the side. You support Jancha and the guns. You can not fix it. Redeem! We know all your ways, do not worry. Security will not be able to help you because it will end too soon. The shirt will not be brown, but something else. “

Interior Minister Aleš Hoys has already responded to threats against the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, writing on Twitter that the threats against the President and the Minister of Defense were unacceptable and reprehensible. “Even more reprehensible is the fact that the threats have not yet been condemned by all political parties,” the interior minister wrote, adding that police should do everything possible to find the perpetrators.
