Zaev denies Miloshoski’s accusations that Janeva would be placed under house arrest

North Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev rejected the accusations by VMRO-DPMNE MP Antonio Miloshoski stated on Thursday that he said at a leaders’ meeting that special public prosecutor Katica Janeva would be placed under house arrest in 10 days.

“I firmly deny such lies because at the leaders’ meeting when the debate was opened about why the cases are being negotiated when they are taken over by the Public Prosecutor’s Office, my comment was that it is logical for Janeva to seek mitigating measures in the investigation for the noninfluence of the witnesses, noninfluence of the cases,” Zaev said adding that it is dishonest to abuse public with lies.

Regarding the discussions on the public prosecution law, Zaev said that negotiations are continuing in order to find a solution that will be supported by a two-thirds majority or by consensus.

Zaev underlined that a solution must be found, though the cases are secured and will be taken over by the public prosecutor.

He also announced that the negotiations on the law on public prosecution will continue with VMRO-DPMNE and other parties in the parliament aimed at finding a solution and for that purpose today Justice Minister Renata Deskoska will present written proposals.
