The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office Skopje requested “data and documentation” from the institutions regarding the criminal charges that were recently submitted against the president of the Supreme Court, Jovo Vangelovski, to the Council for Fact-Finding and initiating a procedure for determining responsibility for a judge, said the Public Prosecutor’s Office for “Meta”.

The council filed the criminal charges on September 28th, after two weeks earlier, when Mr Vangelovski did not allow members of the commission investigating the circumstances of the escape of Goran Grujovski and Nikola Boskovski to enter the Supreme Court and to inspect the case files from the “Target” and “Fortress” cases.

The commission that founded the Council should determine whether the judges from the Criminal, Appeal and Supreme Court, who decided on the requests for detention of the SPO, violated procedure and provided the former head of the fifth administration, Goran Gruovski, and Nikola Boskovski, an employee in UBK, to flee the country.
