Macedonia: Supreme Court abolished verdicts and returned “Monster” case for retrial


The Supreme Court has abolished the verdicts for the “Monster” case and returned the case for a retrial. The court ruled that it accepts the appeals of the defendants for the multiple murders at Smiljkovsko Lake, which occurred on April 12th, 2012.

With the verdict from the highest court in the country, rulings from the Criminal and Appellate Court of Skopje have been terminated, where six people were sentenced to life imprisonment and now the case has been returned for a retrial.

The decision of the Supreme Court comes after public prosecutor, Liljana Spasoska requested the abolition of the verdicts of the Criminal and Appellate Court and the return of the case for a retrial because of “uncertain factual situation”, but also, because of the possible existence of wiretapped conversations held by the Special Prosecutor’s Office, which could change the course of the procedure.
