President Stevo Pendarovski did not discredit the Public Prosecutor’s Office on any grounds; neither did he intend to attack any institutions nor meddle in any legal proceedings, the President’s Cabinet wrote in a press release.

We emphasize that President Pendarovski in his address expressed full support for the competent institutions, in particular, for the prosecution and the court, and stressed that he would do everything to protect them from possible pressures in conducting the investigation and fully clarifying the “Racket” case, reads the press release.

President’s Cabinet once again stressed the need for effective, quick and thorough completion of the investigation into the “Racket” case respecting the principle of presumption of innocence.
