The President of the state, Gjorge Ivanov , today at the annual traditional address before the MPs in the Macedonian parliament, asked from the parliamentary majority to find the strength and reject the Prespa Agreement.


The Special Public Prosecutor’s Office submitted to the court the proposal for terminating the arrest of the accused Saso Mijalkov, and to have it replaced with a milder measure, that is, with house arrest. CIVIL MEDIA already announced the changing of the measure arrest, based on unofficial sources.

The court is to decide on this proposal, after which it will be known whether Mijalkov will come out of prison Shutka, just as his former fellow party members and business partners came out, who left the prison yesterday and today.

With a decision of the Court of Appeals, Orce Kamcev, Cvetan Pandelski and the remaining defendants in the case “Empire”, received mitigation of the measure. Today the arrest for Mile Janakieski and Kiril Bozinovski was also terminated, and replaced with house arrest.

A New Year’s message from CIVIL
