Qualitative Info

No data available, although there was a very notable case in 2005, when two Roma women, a mother and her daughter, were killed in the Roma village Dobruška Vas. Two perpetrators arrived by a car and dropped a bomb through the window into their bedroom.  One of the perpetrators had been involved in a similar bomb attack in the nearby Roma village Brezje a month earlier, when the bomb had missed the window, but still had wounded a Roma woman. After four successive trials, in March 2011 the three perpetrators (one of them being involved in both attacks), all ethnic Slovenians, were convicted to 30, 20 and 8 years of imprisonment.
