At least 11 people employed at the investigative prison “Skopje” will be held accountable for omissions, which led to two separate incidents with former Ministers Mile Janakieski and Spiro Ristovski.
Accountability will be required from employees in the security service, but also from the management structures in the prison, which have made a series of omissions in their work.
A detailed report was prepared by the investigative prison “Skopje” and sent to the Directorate for Execution of Sanctions in the Ministry of Justice, which is expected to issue recommendations and expand the list of responsible persons against whom disciplinary procedures will be initiated.
According to what is stated in the report, omissions in the protocols were initially detected, as well as non-compliance with the protocol for taking prisoners outside the rooms. The report also states that the security was compromised by the lack of search of the premises, which allowed prisoners to keep in their cells objects that are not permitted, such as telephone devices, but also other objects with which physical injury can be inflicted.
After the incidents in the Shutka prison, where former Ministers Janakieski and Ristovski were attacked, the Director of the investigation prison, Gjoko Koteski, resigned.
