Janez Janša is back in the courtroom. But this time not as a defendant, but as a claimant. The SDS is suing its former deputy Andrej Čuš. Cus, who has left the SDS, demands the reimbursement of expenses for the election campaign at the 2014 National Assembly elections. The court heard both. Čuš claims that he wants to send a message to his members: "If you are not with us, you are against us."
Chairman of the SDS Janez Janša when he leaves the court where the client is suing his former deputy, he said to the media: "Stand up for something more important, Slovenia has bigger problems."
"We said what it was like, so I just want to say that one day we will no longer be connected, the problems will continue to exist in Slovenia, and one of them will now lose my frustration about me" he is certainAndrej Čuš.
In 2014, Čuš ran for SDS deputy, for which he signed a contract with the party. Since leaving the parliamentary group in 2016, the SDS has been asking for more than 8 thousand euros, which should be part of the cost of the campaign.
Čuš insists that he is not obliged to do anything: "I have proven that I have submitted everything in the file, but if some invoices have been paid by the customer for the campaign, I will arrange them, but until today I am not familiar with it."
That Chush really owes the party, but today the president insisted. He is also convinced that Čuš knew the contract he had signed. In the meantime, Čuš sees the SDS action as a message:"To show us somehow when you're not with us, you're against us, and that's a school, the level of Slovenian democracy." We have people in Parliament who vote, as the boss says, but not as it should be. "
In addition to Čuš, the party sued another former delegate who stepped out, Звонка Лаха. As Janša said in court, this case was initially completed for the benefit of the SDS.
