Qualitative Info

The data on racist crimes and violence is relatively limited and does not allow assessment of possible disproportionate under-reporting.
Competent authorities record criminal offences and misdemeanours in accordance with the provisions of the Criminal Code and the Protection of Public Order Act.
The police are the only body able to produce some data on basic offences involving racially and religiously motivated intolerance, but this data is not always consistently collected.
Statisti─Źni urad Republike Slovenije (SURS) [Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia] is the most comprehensive source of data on criminal offences handled by the prosecution service and courts. Data on criminal offences is collected via statistical questionnaires answered by the public prosecutor’s office and local and district courts.
