Macedonia is suffocating in strong criminal restraints. Every pore in society is heavily criminalized through active participation of the government. There is no citizen who disagrees with the fact that criminals remain unpunished and that there is no justice. And the absence of justice means the presence of injustice. All this shows that there is no legal system that will oppose the criminal octopus that strongly suffocates Macedonia, said Hristijan Mickoski, leader of VMRO-DPMNE, at Sunday’s press conference.

According to the opposition leader, this is not about politics, but about a collapsed system, a powerful red alarm that says the government is stealing the state and the legal system is completely devastated.

Mickoski says every new affair and scandal is bigger than the previous one, but with no resolution and accountability.

The leader of VMRO-DPMNE believes that this is not politics, but a dirty game of a few criminals, and various pro-government organizations that consciously or unconsciously stick to this scam. And anyone with dilemmas should ask one simple thing, how could the Constitutional Court not approve and debate any SPO-related initiative, or how could this initiative be kept in the drawer for three years, and right now for a few months before the election, at a time when the government is linked to many scandals and crimes, to open a topic among the public and put it on its agenda.

According to him, the issue with the Constitutional Court shows that there must be mechanisms to protect against amnesty abuse as a tool.

Mickoski used the opportunity to make requests regarding the amnesty issue.

The first request is to make legislative changes that would prohibit any person who would be granted pardon to practice politics or perform public activity in the state. Second, to open a debate, to consult the legal community and to decide on prohibiting the pardoning of politicians, as in 2008 the Global case has shown that justice is handed down through recklessly granting amnesty, Mickoski said.

The leader of VMRO-DPMNE emphasized that we must create a system that will independently rule, prove crime and hold everyone accountable for violating the law and the Constitution.
