The International Democrat Union

- condemns selective justice as an affront to the rule of law;
- resolves to support its Member Party, the Slovenian Democratic Party, and their continuing efforts to strengthen the rule of law and judicial independence in Slovenia and
- calls on the government of Slovenia and other post-communist countries to enact and implement effective lustration laws.
