When the Special Prosecutor Katica Janeva gave her consent to the proposal brought by the defence attorneys of Zoran Veruvshevski and Gorgi Lazarevski in the “Putsch” case for them to to be released from remand, it caused quite a heated reaction from the ruling party VMRO-DPMNE. They responded that the ‘people could turn on her’, i.e. GDOM (Civil Defence Movement for Macedonia)
Analyst, Alexander Pandov, who was part of the Civil Defence Movement for Macedonia (GDOM) while SDSM published their “bombs”, and held debates in cities across the country, yesterday in a statement to “Sitel“, said that it was “a matter of time before the people will turn on Janeva.”
“I guess she does not understand that the people in Macedonia are fed up with “bombs” and the likes of Verushevski and all kinds of people from Murtino and it is a matter of time before the people will gather in front of her offices. Instead of making her first act to get those 600,000 wire-tapped conversations the first thing she does…. she frees Verushevski”, said Mr Pandov.
Two days before this statement, a member of the Executive Committee of VMRO-DPMNE, Antonio Milososki said that VMRO-DPMNE no longer believed that Katica Janeva and her team were independent and VMRO-DPMNE expressed serious reservations about every step she takes in the future.
“They have confirmed all the information to the public regarding a close relationship and coordination between Janeva and Zaev and Janeva will act strictly in order with the party SDSM. VMRO-DPMNE believes that any subsequent proceedings Janeva will have, as before, will be directly motivated by the political agenda of the SDSM and Zaev and that instead of acting impartially and objectively in the function of the law, she will follow the orders of the party SDSM”, said Milososki on Friday.
Therefore, if the ruling party and her supporters react to this event which, by law, the court decides, not the Special Prosecutor, how will VMRO-DPMNE react when Janeva starts filing charges against their officials?
