Parliament rejects Draft-Law on Full Amnesty for 27 April Parliament Incidents

The Parliament officially rejected the draft-law on full amnesty for participants in the Parliament Incidents on 27 April 2017, filed by VMRO-DPMNE. “This law focuses on amnesty for all participants in the incidents; those charged and convicted for violence, for the attempted murder of MP Zijadin Sela, and for terroristic organising and endangering of the state’s security. If the government led by Zoran Zaev really stands for reconciliation, they will accept this law, so that we can all reach a mutually acceptable agreement,” said VMRO-DPMNE MP Nevenka Stamenkvska during the discussion about the draft-law. After the debate was over, the MPs votes, and with 59 votes against and 25 in favour, the draft-law was officially rejected.
