SPO: We are concerned that a public prosecutor to replace Katica Janeva has still not been elected

We remind that the SPO’s mandate is until September 15, 2020, when the employment of the employees in the Prosecutor’s Office and the current obligations of the institution also end. The lack of a regulation on what will happen with the employees, current obligations, archives and materials the Prosecutor Office disposes with, in a situation when there is no managing person of the institution, will lead to real problems in realizing the employment rights of the employees and in settling the obligations of the institution, and at the same time there will also be a lack of control over the implementation of the security procedures related to all the materials that the Prosecutor’s Office disposes with”, states the SPO.

Macedonia is Volino

Following the publication of the government strategy on a “decisive fight against misinformation, false news and hybrid attacks on democracy”, we have seen just a decisive fight against the strategy.
At the village fight (at the football match of the third Macedonian league that was played between Volino and Crnoobuki), which was displayed as a small “uprising”, thanks to the “couriers”, the MOI responded, nothing less, nothing more, with a complaint to the AJM, CEMM, and the AAAVMS due to the obvious deliberate misinformation by certain media outlets in relation to the incident and are expecting for the news organizations to react to such unprofessional conduct”. This is probably the “most decisive” attack against misinformation that the institutions could have thought of. In the meanwhile, the MOI expressed hope that “these organizations will accordingly respond to the unprofessional, unethical and obviously deliberate misinformation with the purpose of inciting hatred, violence and intolerance of several media outlets”. What “accordingly” can the AJM, CEMM, and the AAAVMS do, and what the state can’t do, remains a secret, writes Xhabir Deralla in his Burst.
