The Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has decided that the abolition of the then President Gjorgji Ivanov, from April 2016, which pardoned 54 people from persecution – is valid, is not and cannot be withdrawn or revoked. Thus, most of the cases that are now in the trial phase on SPO charges fail, must be stopped, and the accused or convicts must be released from persecution or punishment, reports Vecer.mk.
The decisions of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, according to our law, are binding on the courts. According to the information of Vecer.mk, the Court in Strasbourg informed the Macedonian government about its position on September 14, and decided to implement the decision in two phases. The government has so far hidden this information from the public.
The first stage is to instruct the executive and the judiciary to find a way to implement the Strasbourg decision in an agreement between the justice system and the persecuted, ie the accused or convicted. The deadline for this is December 20 this year.
