Commission for Protection against Discrimination: Kacarska executes political elimination of Nikola Gruevski

The State Commission for Protection against Discrimination determined that in the past period Nikola Gruevski was a victim of direct discrimination by the Basic Court Skopje 1 and the judge Dobrila Kacarska.

“Direct discrimination against the former prime minister and president of VMRO-DPMNE and current MP Nikola Gruevski was carried out by the Basic Court Skopje 1 and by the judge Dobrila Kacarska, who in a highly controversial and unlawful procedure with speed as for no one another previously in the Republic of Macedonia and with a huge number of violations of the procedures, as well as unprofessional conduct without valid evidence, sentenced Nikola Gruevski to two years in prison “, reads the explanation of the Commission.

The same court is preparing to reject today the appeal for the decision to postpone the execution of the sanction, and maybe by Friday, or at least Monday, expressly send Gruevski to prison.

Nikola Gruevski himself, as well as numerous legal experts, repeatedly publicly emphasized that the former Prime Minister and current MP is exposed to a visible and classical political persecution, a political witch-hunt in which the prosecution of the SPO and the court are only an instrument and perpetrator of the current government for his political elimination, humiliation, torture and, through a mounted court-political process, his imprisonment.

The opinion of the independent Commission for Protection against Discrimination is the first official and institutional reaction and legal position of an independent state body responsible to the Macedonian Parliament.

The established direct discrimination by an independent state commission for protection against discrimination by a court on a former longtime prime minister and opposition MP in any normal state is a scandal of unprecedented proportions that must not be relativized or secluded and cannot end without appropriate reaction of the judicial oversight bodies, but also a wider social and institutional response.

The opinion stated that Nikola Gruevski was directly discriminated under Article 6, paragraph 1, and on the basis of his personal and social status as former President of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia and former president of a political party from Article 3 in the area of ​​judiciary and administration Article 4 of the Law on Prevention and Protection against Discrimination, which resulted in taking or violating and restricting equal recognition of the right to a fair trial as a fundamental human right by Judge Dobrila Kacarska to the Basic Court 1 Skopje.

“There is direct discrimination against Nikola Gruevski from Article 6 paragraph 1 on the basis of personal and social status from Article 3 of the Law on Prevention and Protection against Discrimination, because it he placed in an undesirable position by failing to provide the necessary criteria for a fair trial by the Basic Court Skopje 1 Skopje “, reads the opinion of the Commission.

A peaceful legal protest is organized for tonight at 7 pm in front of the Basic Court Skopje 1 in support of Nikola Gruevski and against the political persecution against him and seeking justice for him.
