With the Court rejecting the requests from Katica Janeva and her team to take into custody the suspects in Operation “Titanic”, time is of the essence and there is a short statutory time limits (24 or 48 hours) for all sides – SPP, suspects and the court.
- Janeva has 24 hours from the adjudication of the preliminary procedure to appeal the judge’s decision to the Basic Court Skopje 1.
After the SPP appeal, the Council of the Basic Court Skopje 1 will decide, which is made up of three judges.
- Within 48 hours of receiving a complaint the council needs to make a decision.
- The suspects have 24 hours to appeal to a higher court if the Council decided to accept the appeal of the prosecution and to take them into custody.
