The Mandate of the Special Public Prosecutor’s Office (SPO) for starting and carrying out investigations is over and it doesn’t have any legitimacy to start new procedures, reacts VMRO-DPMNE to businessman Ljupco Palevski’s Palcho being taken into custody by a warrant issued by SPO.

This opposition party says that if Palevski has broken the law, he has to be taken accountable by the Basic Public Prosecution (OJO).

-According to the law, on the 30th of June, SPO’s deadline to file all the charges for all indications and cases for which Katica Janeva thought to have a basis to be processed further has expired. If Palevski has broken the law he has to be taken accountable by OJO which is the only one that has legitimacy and is authorized to start new investigations without any obstacles – said today Orce Gjorgjievski of VMRO-DPMNE.

He stressed that any activity by SPO that is contrary to the law will inevitably invite criminal responsibility.

-The court mustn’t allow being dragged in these illegitimate games and intrigues by SPO because the judge that will accept to process a case out of SPO’s legally granted mandate will work unauthorized and is violating the law, and that will result in a punishable sanction and he will be taken accountable for these illegal charges – said Gjorgjievski in the name of VMRO-DPMNE.
