Blaž Zgaga is a freelance investigative journalist living in Slovenia and is co-author of the trilogy In the Name of the State, which explores arms smuggling in the Balkans during the conflicts of the 1990s. He is regularly publishing in Croatian magazine Nacional. After disclosure of a US DIA secret operation in 2000, he was prosecuted for - and later cleared of charges of - revealing military secrets. In a collaboration with Finnish journalist Magnus Berglund, they revealed massive corruption in the Patria arms deal in 2008. Then prime minister of Slovenia was convicted to two years in prison for Patria bribery by the Higher Court in April 2014.
