In Slovenia, 11 courtrooms in the district courts, 11 social services centres and the prison at Dob pri Mirna have been equipped with a videoconference system since 1 May 2011, and one device is in use by the police. Three mobile videoconferencing devices are available for videoconferences in courts or social services centres that have no system installed as yet.
Slovenia systematically included videoconferencing systems in the projects it implemented between 2009 and 2013. The project qualified for 85% financing from the European Social Fund.
Videoconference systems are an important asset for the Slovenian justice system. They facilitate questioning of witnesses, experts, children, hospitalised patients, residents of care homes for the elderly, prisoners and other distance hearings. They are especially advantageous for cross-border cases, allowing parties living abroad to participate in the court proceedings much more easily. Instead of having to travel to Slovenia, they can make a statement or be heard through a videoconference link.
