29. 12. 2016Ljubljana, 29 December 2016 - Before the end of 2016, the first 142 former foreign currency savers of the Ljubljanska banka Sarajevo main branch were paid €1.5 million. Based on final informative calculations and decisions, more than 10,000 payments in the total of €104.6 million have already been made to savers of the two Ljubljanska banka branches in Sarajevo and Zagreb respectively.The Succession Fund of the Republic of Slovenia initiated the decision-making process concerning matters related to the verification of unpaid old foreign-currency deposits at the Main Branch Office in Sarajevo on 21 October 2016. On that day, Slovenia obtained the required documentation from Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the news being published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, thus fulfilling conditions set out in the Act Regulating the Enforcement of the European Court of Human Rights Judgement in Case No. 60642/08 for the commencement of the verification procedure concerning the savers of the mentioned branch. The Succession Fund immediately issued informative calculations and made payments in the total amount of €1.5 million to first 142 savers in 2016. Until now, the fund has already received over 28,500 claims for the verification of unpaid old foreign-currency deposits from Ljubljanska banka savers, of which more than 15,000 refer to the main branch in Zagreb and others to the main branch in Sarajevo. Based on the final informative calculations and decisions, more than 10,000 payments in the total amount of €104.6 million have so far been made to savers of the Ljubljanska banka branches in Sarajevo and Zagreb. The Succession Fund issued informative calculations for all savers who submitted complete applications containing all information required to issue a decision, while inviting other savers to complete their documentations. The Fund processes applications according to the order in which they were received, and savers can expedite the proceedings by sending the missing documentation even before the Succession Fund invites them to do so (a guide to a complete application is available at: SLO/ENG). Slovenia has been executing the judgement in the Ališić case consistently and in accordance with the legislation. In case of the old foreign-currency deposits, the verification procedure is carried out equally for both the savers of the Ljubljanska banka branch in Sarajevo and the one Zagreb. The procedure, which is set forth by the Act adopted by Slovenia in July 2015, represents the basis for the decision-making process. In less than 1% cases, appeals have been filed with regard to the informative calculations issued by the Fund. Such low percentage shows that the savers mostly agree with the calculations, which also shows the adequacy of the legal criteria. The Succession Fund will continue to receive applications into verification until the end of 2017, while some payments to savers will extend into 2018.
