Slovenia's Interior Minister tendered his resignation today, after the detention of Economy Minister Počivalšek.
Economy Minister Počivalšek is in detention after the National Bureau of Investigation started conducting house searches today at 11 locations over the controversial purchase of medical ventilators. Following today’s events, Interior Minister Hojs decided to step down because he was not notified about the investigation.
In what has been a politically eventful day, PM Janez Janša later also accused the National Bureau of Investigation of double standards, and said it was time to end "selective justice".
