Reimbursement of Slovenian bank's Yugoslav-era clients in Croatia begins

Slovenia has begun reimbursing Yugoslav-era clients of its now-defunct Ljubljanska Banka's Zagreb branch and under the first reimbursement package, 39 former foreign currency depositors or their heirs are set to receive EUR 685,000 on March 3-14, the Slovenian STA news agency said on Saturday.

Slovenia estimates that it will need EUR 385 million to reimburse Ljubljanska Banka's Yugoslav era clients in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina under a European Court of Human Rights ruling from 2014. It is estimated that 230,000 depositors or their heirs will request to be reimbursed.

Reimbursement requests may be filed with the Slovenian Succession Fund until the end of 2017.
