In Slovenia there rarely happen horrific events like in movies or TV shows.
But this year, even children heard that some girl wanted to cut off her hand to get money from an insurance company.
She was persuaded by her boyfriend Sebastian Abramov, who was previously named Sebastjan Colarič, but then changed his name and surname. Abramov is also suspected of murdering his previous girlfriend Sara Veber in March 2015.
In recent days, many people have talked about a severe attack on a Maribor judge. When she arrived home on Saturday afternoon, about ten days ago, she was attacked, and she was beaten so badly that she is still in hospital.
The police investigated whether the cause of the attack was linked to her job or private life.
Specifically, judges often enouncter the worst criminals, and many times they have been threatened.
But the police have now reported that the attack was linked to a judge’s private life.
The judge, according to the Maribor newspaper Večer, intends to leave her partner.
The police have filed a criminal complaint against the alleged perpetrator for attempted murder. According to Večer‘s reporters, the alleged perpetrator of this serious attack is the judge’s partner, whom the police have never dealt with before with regard to domestic violence.
Domestic violence is also not rare in Slovenia.
NGOs often say that the worst violence against women usually happens when a partner, whether a husband or boyfriend, is told to leave.
Points to Consider
- Why are women in danger at home?
- Is this so in other countries, too?
- Do you know what to do when you are witness to a ciolent act?
