Old boy networks making Slovenia ill

The Slovenian Health Minister Tomaž Gantar put the country's largest drugstore chain Lekarna Ljubljana under administrative supervision in mid May owing to bookkeeping irregularities and ethically questionable sales strategies. On Wednesday it became known that the mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković, tried to put in a good word for his friend, the boss of the drugstore chain Marko Jaklič, with the health minister. Deplorable behaviour, the conservative daily Delo writes: "The voters should have asked the mayor what he's more worried about: Jaklič's profits or the health of his citizens? Common sense tells us you can't have it both ways. Or is this sort of behaviour usual among the 'boys'? … Given the most recent revelations about his affairs the mayor's anxiety is understandable. More than any kind of political payback everything points to the simple fact that every seed eventually bears fruit. In this case one of them happened to be Jaklič."
