SPO files 17 indictments against 94 individuals, 7 legal entities - Mandate runs out today

The Special Prosecutor's Office said Thursday it has filed 17 indictments in 18 cases against 94 individuals and seven legal entities.


Special prosecutor Katica Janeva said they have solid evidence over serious abuse of institutional capacities by individuals and organized groups, abuse of office and violation of legal proceedings in public procurements.

There is no indictment in the "Talir" case over illegal financing of a political party, but the investigation will continue.

"The investigation in this case was opened a month ago, but the timeframe did not allow for completion of the procedure. A decision will be made after undertaking all actions in the investigation on this serious, big and complex case", said Janeva.

Indictment has also not been filed for case "Tabla" (Board), involving a school principal who is suspected of making an illegal direct contract for the construction of a new village school avoiding the necessary tendering procedure. A decision would be made upon completion of the investigation.
"The case will be expanded and senior officials will be indicted", added Janeva.

Two cases "Target" and "Tvrdina" (Fortress) over illegal surveillance of communications and destruction of surveillance equipment have been merged into one.

The SPO seeks detention for 18 individuals and precautionary measures against 47 persons.

The Office previously filed indictments in three other cases - over the illegal destruction of documents from the surveillance systems, violence in Centar municipality and "Transporter" case involving excessive payments for transportation of pupils in Bitola municipality.
