Slovenia’s government is attempting to find a central bank governor to replace Boštjan Jazbec, who quit after coming under severe political pressure over a bank bail-in.

Jazbec announced his resignation as Bank of Slovenia governor on March 20, saying he had come under “intolerable” pressure, including death threats, over the decision to “bail in” shareholders and bond-holders of several major banks in 2013 and 2014. He said he would take up a role with the European Resolution Board.
