Slovenia’s highest court to review arbitration deal with Croatia

The border arbitration agreement signed by Slovenian and Croatian prime ministers in Stockholm on 4 November will be put to review before Slovenia’s highest court on Thursday.

Slovenia’s highest court is expected to rule on compatibility with the Constitution which says that Slovenia is a territorially unified and indivisible state and with the part of the Basic Constitutional Charter which says that the border between the former Yugoslav republics of Slovenia and Croatia becomes the state border.

The Constitutional Court is expected to take at least until February or March to rule whether the contents of the agreement are in line with the Constitution.

Croatian parliament has already ratified the agreement. Political and legal debates regarding the text of the agreement are still ongoing in Slovenia.
