US State Department: Corruption in judiciary, no justice – selectively targeted government critics and low-level offenders


The 2021 Investment Climate Statement on North Macedonia warns about the high level of corruption in Macedonia. Many businesses operating in N. Macedonia, including some U.S. businesses, identified corruption as a problem in government tenders and in the judiciary.

“North Macedonia has laws intended to counter bribery, abuse of official position, and conflicts-of-interest, and government officials and their close relatives are legally required to disclose their income and assets. However, enforcement of anti-corruption laws has at times been weak and selectively targeted government critics and low-level offenders. There have been credible allegations of corruption in law enforcement, the judiciary, and many other sectors,” reads the report.
