The Macedonian Constitutional Court issued a press release informing that it met to discuss a proposal to reduce the penalties and to shorten the statute of limitations on crimes perpetrated by Government office holders such as abuse of office

The broadly defined article was greatly abused by former Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva, and she carried out her campaign of arrests and persecution of VMRO-DPMNE officials. But, in perspective, it could become very important for current SDSM and DUI party office holders, many of whom are allegedly involved in major corruption scandals.

According to the court’s press release, the decision could be reached during one of its coming sessions.
