Environment and Spatial Planning Minister Simon Zaitz has confirmed that he dismissed Chief Environmental and Spatial Planning Inspector Dragica Hrzica. She proposes that her party colleague from SMC, Dragan Matic, replace her.
for considering replacing Hržič, the minister told us in early August. Today, he confirmed to pop TV that he has already replaced the Chief Inspector.
Hare was displeased with Hržič, as the inspectorate had not detected irregularities in the Moravian termite operation in all the years. After an analysis by the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia (Arso) revealed the pollution, a check last month ordered the company to shut down the waste treatment plant. Zajc immediately announced extraordinary controls, which should show why the inspection did not detect irregularities earlier this year (the Moravian company has been operating since 1998). Termite is reported to have appealed the decision.
Hare offered to replace Hrzica Dragan Matic, which raises doubts as to whether the inspectors' poor performance in controlling the Termites is really the only reason for the minister's desire to change.
The rabbit hires in the inspectorate: is it a termite or just a party appetite?

Matic heads the RS archive
Matic is a doctor of historical sciences, has been the head of the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia for several years, and from 2014 to 2018 a member of the SOS. After his term last year, he was again hired into the National Archives. At least according to publicly available information, there are no environmental references or experience in inspection work.
In 2015, when they last selected Chief Inspector and selected Hrzica, the Ministry stated in the invitation for the proposed professional exam for an inspector. Whether Matic has this is unknown. Hrzica is a graduate majoring in chemical technology. Before being promoted to her current position, she first worked in economics as a development engineer and head of quality and laboratory, then served as an environmental inspector for 15 years, her government wrote in 2016.
It is interesting to note that in early July, Matic shared an interview with Minister Zaitz on the social network Facebook, adding that "Minister Zaitz's good deed gives him a legitimate expectation that we will be able to solve the environmental challenges."
The government will have to confirm the mother still.
