The Special Public prosecution are appealing to the Supreme Court after yesterday’s ruling by the Court of Appeals after they declined the SPO’s request to extend the measure of house arrest for the Mayor of Bitola, Vladimir Taleski. Instead, they terminated the measure of house arrest and gace his a cautionary measure – to report to the court twice a week.
“There are two solutions. The first solution is that the defendant’s request will have his house arrest terminated, which the Court of Appeals accepted, the second solution is that the Supreme Court overturns the Court of Appeals ruling, and extends the measure of house arrest from a precautionary measure”, said Lence Ristovska.
During the appeal process, Taleski will be free, and because he will no longer be under house arrest, he could return to work.
Lawyer Zvonko Davidovic explained that as soon as they make a decision to terminate the measure of house arrest, it comes into force effectively immediately. According to Davidovic, the decision was made in respect to the defendants human rights.
When “Meta” attempted to telephone Mayor Taleski, his phone was off.
