Former Minister of Interior Gordana Jankuloska, as well as other female convicts, are prevented from using the legal facilities that male prisoners have, the Commission for Protection against Discrimination recently pointed out, as well as Jankuloska’s husband, lawyer Vlatko Ilievski during an interview with Alsat TV.
“Convicted felons are treated as third-class citizens. They see them as lowest of the low. No one cares about their legally guaranteed rights. Given that we are talking about the female part of the convicted felons, where in the past years there were no sound names that could articulate this problem, they were left to themselves. Neither the Ombudsperson, nor the Helsinki Committee, nor other authorities have finished their work there,” said Ilievski.
