The Human Rights Ombudsman of the Republic of Slovenia noted and condemned a rise in hate speech related to the refugee crisis as they issued statements on the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on Monday.

The Human Rights Ombudsman pointed to the problems faced by the erased and the Roma population in Slovenia, while also highlighting a surge since last August in hate speech directed against refugees.

The office singled out a statement by a journalist openly advocating shooting at refugees and urged against granting any kind of legitimacy to expressions of hate.
