European Ambassador to Macedonia Samuel Zbogar expressed support for the state prosecutors Ljubomir Joveski and Vilma Ruskoska, who initiated an organized crime case that led to the resignation of Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva.

In his remarks, Zbogar said that the move by the two prosecutors was “decisive” and that the EU supports their activities. Despite the scandal that alleges abuse of office and extortion using the wiretaps stored in the Special Prosecutor’s Office, Zbogar also said that it is important that this service continues to operate in the future. Most of the SPO prosecutors distanced themselves from Janeva, insisting that the major corruption case is a “one-off”.
