Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in an interview with Koha newspaper said that the government will be committed to ensuring EU monitoring of high-profile corruption cases as soon as possible. We were the first country in the region to ask the EU to immediately launch an initiative to monitor high-profile cases of corruption. The European Commission supported the initiative and announced a quick start for this instrument, Zaev said.
“We believe that this step will increase the responsibility of prosecutors and judges, strengthen the fight against corruption, and also increase the trust and confidence of citizens in their country and its institutions. The process to clean up the judiciary should be led by these institutions in cooperation with the legal experts, because only in this way, the trust in the courts and prosecutor’s offices will be restored and judiciary will be strengthened, which must finally deliver efficient and non-selective justice,” Zaev said.
