Xhaferi schedules session at 17h over Gruevski’s MP immunity

Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi has scheduled the plenary session over the issue of stripping Nikola Gruevski of his MP immunity on Tuesday afternoon at 17:00h.

Earlier in the day, the Parliament’s Committee on Rules of Procedure and Mandatory-Immunity Issues endorsed the six motions by the court for stripping Gruevski of his MP immunity, for the purpose of ordering detention.

VMRO-DPMNE MPs did not attend the session.

Committee chairman Pavle Bogoevski voiced disappointment from the fact that the Macedonian system failed to ensure Gruevski’s serving of the two-year prison sentence in case Tank.

He urged for responsibility and an outcome of the investigation over Gruevski’s escape.
