Constitutional Judges could not come to a decision on the cross in Butel


Today the Constitutional Court could not come to a decision on the initiative for an assessment of the constitutionality and legality for the building of a 55 metre cross in the Municipality of Butel.

The court told “Meta” , at today’s session eight judges were present and their votes came to a draw. To be more precise, four judges rejected the initiative and four accepted.

The initiative will be discussed again at the next sessions of the Constitutional Court, probably the next session.

This is the third time the judges have not been able to come to an agreement over a decision on this initiative, which was submitted to the court in March by the Mayor of Struga Zijadin Sela. According to Mayor Sela the construction of the cross in Butel does not comply with the Badinter principle.

The building of the cross, which was donated by the World Macedonian Congress (WMC), caused tensions after members of the DUI and their supporters set up camp and protested against the construction which was met with counter-protests.

The President of the World Macedonian Congress Todor Petrov was physically attacked the day after the ceremony of the consecration of the cornerstone.
