BRUSSELS – The European Commission said on Friday it welcomed the nomination of two Slovenian prosecutors to the European prosecutor’s office but wanted to see the procedure completed.

“This is a step in the right direction,” a Commission spokesperson told a regular briefing.

“We’ll continue to follow developments closely until the appointment procedure is successfully and lawfully completed. You will remember that the Commission has … repeatedly called on Slovenia to nominate the delegated prosecutors without any further delay,” the spokesperson said.
