Slovenia. In April, the Prosecutor's Office announced
that the investigation into the country's only suspected
case of war crime in connection with Slovenia breaking out
of Yugoslavia in 1991 had been closed. The target involved
the shooting of three Yugoslav soldiers. According to
CountryAAH, a total of 47
Yugoslav soldiers died in the short conflict.
In July, the EU gave the final clear sign for entry into
the EMU from the turn of the year. Slovenia thus became the
first of the ten countries that became new members in 2004
to be given the right to completely replace their currency
with the euro.
