"First and foremost we hope to establish the patterns of an abducted state," said Hanžek prior to the partially closed session. He explained that the public indeed most often has the impression that the sole purpose of inquiry commissions is their establishment, but quite a number of commissions have successfully completed their work.
The mentioned commission today adopted four decisions. Before the next session, to be held in 14 or 21 days, the members will study the material collected until now, which is rather substantial. At the next session they will continue their discussions regarding their work, and decide on the contents of their decision on implementation of preparatory investigative steps, Hanžek explained.
Alenka Bratušek (ZaAB), member of the commission, even before the session announced her intention to "make a personal effort to clarify as many facts concerning this catastrophic project as possible". Another member of the commission Bojan Dobovšek (SMC) emphasizes that for now it is only possible to talk about indications of the involvement of politics in the project.
The commission will put under the magnifying glass the period since the year 2003, but the investigated period could be prolonged based on findings during the investigation. The project has been raising doubts about entitlement, economy, and transparency; its value has increased from initial 600 million to presently estimated 1,428 million euros. It has been scrutinized by a number of institutions, including the Police.
