Parliament rejects law on amnesty over the April 27 incidents

– The draft-law on amnesty of the suspected, indicted and convicted persons over the April 27 intrusion in Parliament, filed by VMRO-DPMNE, has not received the required majority to be discussed at the 66. Parliament session.

Nevenka Stamenkovska from VMRO-DPMNE said in the law’s elaboration that it encompasses all persons that have already received first-instance court verdicts, those charged with terrorist endangerment of the constitutional order and other crimes.

“The law should serve as real national reconciliation for all those taking part in the April 27 events, not a selective one as seen by the establishment of the so-called reconciliation committee in the Parliament. We urge MPs of the parliamentary majority to support the law, thus bringing an end to divisions in the society and restoring normality in Macedonia,” said VMRO-DPMNE’s MP.
