Political dialogue in North Macedonia is expected to resume at the end of August. Once the country’s parliament convenes again, it is expected to discuss the bill on the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the fate of the Special Prosecutor’s Office.
Opposition party VMRO-DPMNE has announced that it has prepared its version of the bill which relates to the fate of the Special Prosecutor’s Office. According to this bill, the Special Prosecutor’s Office will be part of the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
VMRO-DPMNE Spokesperson Dimce Arsovski says that the opposition has demanded that those prosecutors who work at the Special Prosecutor’s Office return to their previous positions, after which they must be investigated about their possible involvement in the “Racket” case and only then can they apply for a position at the new prosecutor’s office.
Justice Minister Renata Deskoska, who is sponsor of the government bill, says that she’s ready for talks with the opposition. According to her, all VMRO-DPMNE is trying to do is to delay the process.
