Discrimination investigation is carried out in line with the administrative procedure based on complaints received by the equality body (the Advocate) from parties (pursuant to Article 33 of PADA) and in proceedings instituted ex officio (Article 34 of PADA).

The Advocate of Principle of Equality received a complaint regarding a media release titled Presežki 5 published in a printed magazine Demokracija. The Advocate assessed that the case is relevant for the protection against discrimination based on personal circumstances of race or ethnic backgrounds and religion or belief so the proceedings against the publisher of the printed medium were initiated ex officio. The Advocate found by analyzing the text that the author was justifying ideas of the supremacy or superiority of people according to their race, ethnic background, and religious belief. Such writings violate article 10 of the Protection Against Discrimination Act (incitement towards discrimination). The Advocate also analyzed the text in terms of freedom of speech and concluded it to be an abuse of Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The director and executive editor of the weekly periodical Demokracija said that the article is a periodical »satirical piece« and he likened the circumstances of the media article to the journalistic stylistic form »glosa«. The Advocate assessed that justifying the idea of supremacy or superiority of one group over another constitutes discrimination regardless of the genre written in. With the help of a media expert and author of numerous journal publications, the Advocate concluded that the piece Presežki 5 is neither satire nor »glosa« as it does not meet the criteria of this genre.

The Advocate of the Principle of Equality received a complaint against the publisher of the television medium because the host of the talk show Faktor spoke of the differences between races, such as different intelligence quotients, the laziness of the African people, etc. The Advocate recognized race and ethnic background as the personal circumstances based on which individuals are afforded protection from discrimination. The words spoken match the statutory description of incitement to discrimination.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Refusal to provide taxi service due to race and nationality of the client constitutes discrimination based on the individual’s personal circumstances” open=”no” class=”” id=””]

The Advocate of the Principle of Equality received a motion lodged by a third party based on which he considered possible discrimination regarding the transportation services. A group of funeral attendants needed transport from the Žale Cemetery to the city center. They arranged themselves two taxies to pick them up. The taxies arrived separately. The first driver approached the group of 8-10 people and after a conversation with a potential customer slowly drove away. The second driver observed the situation and then decided to approach the group. As he drove up to them he realized they had a darker skin complexion. He told the dispatcher over the radion that these are migrants and he was not going to give them a ride. The Advocated found that both of the taxi drivers violated the prohibition of discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic background.
