The US State Department once again have asked the President of Macedonia, Gjorge Ivanov to withdraw his decision on the pardons and to allow the Special Public Prosecutor’s Office and the courts to do their job.

At yesterday’s briefing for journalists Elizabeth Trudeau, Director of the Press Office at U.S. Department of State said:

“We and the EU have made our concerns known about the importance of credible elections in Macedonia. Time is short. Much remains to be done. We strongly urge President Ivanov to rescind his decision and let the special prosecutor’s office and the courts do their job. I would refer you to some of the statements that we’ve made on that”.
