Information on the Verification Procedure

By 31st May 2018, the Succession Fund of the Republic of Slovenia (hereinafter: the Fund) has received over 38,500 requests for verification, of which more than half refer to the Zagreb Main Branch and the rest to the Sarajevo Main Branch. Due to overdue submission according to the statutory deadline for submitting requests for verification of unpaid old foreign-currency savings based on the Act on the Method of Execution of the Judgement of the European Court of Human Rights in case no. 60642/08 (hereinafter: the Act), which expired on 31st December 2017, the Fund has rejected slightly over 50 requests for verification so far.


The Fund has already issued decisions regarding verification requests in more than 33,940 cases, of which 18,250 requests refer to the Zagreb Main Branch. The verification procedure for the Sarajevo Main Branch only started on 21st October 2016, when all the conditions set out in the Act were fulfilled, and during this period more than 15,690 decisions have been issued.

 

By 31st May 2018, the Fund has issued 30,860 indicative calculations, in the total amount of €279,7 million, of which more than 17,740 indicative calculations, in the total amount of €158,0, refer to the Main Branch Zagreb, and more than 13,120 indicative calculation, in the total amount of  €121,7 million, refer to the Main Branch Sarajevo. The Fund has received less than 1% objections against issued indicative calculations.


By 31st May 2018, more than 28,560 payments concerning final indicative calculations and decisions have been made, in the total amount of €266,4 million, of which 16,975 payments, in the total amount of €154,5 million, refer to the Zagreb Main Branch, and 11,585 payments, in the total amount of €111,9 million, refer to the Sarajevo Main Branch.

 

While executing the judgement in the Ališić case, the Fund has encountered some problems related to the identification of the ownership of foreign-currency savings and the factual situation regarding the foreign-currency accounts of certain savers of the former Ljubljanska banka, Sarajevo Main Branch. Despite the agreement on cooperation between the Republic of Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina at the operational level in obtaining information from the banking archives in Sarajevo, the procedures on Bosnia and Herzegovina's side are long-lasting and make it more difficult to resolve such verification requests more quickly.

 

In order to ensure a faster completion of the verification procedure, the Fund kindly asks the beneficiaries or their heirs, who have sent their requests in time, to inform the Fund in case their contact data has changed, and to check the accuracy of their bank account data or to check whether the bank account to which the funds will be wired, once they receive the indicative calculation, is still active.
