SCPC Calls on PPO to Investigate “Big Ring” DUP

At Thursday’s session, the State Commission for Prevention of Corruption (SCPC) proposed to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to undertake all investigative actions, to provide all necessary evidence, to establish all relevant facts and to make a lawful and fair public prosecutorial decision regarding realization of DUP “Big Ring”. This detailed urban plan was adopted on 21 December 2012, and SCPC believes that its adoption caused violations by the planners, who as professionals in the field are obliged to act according to the rules of the profession and legal regulations, but also by municipal employees, both in the City of Skopje and in the Ministry of Transport and Communications, which ignored such omissions and thus enabled the adoption of a detailed urban plan contrary to the legal regulations. Biljana Ivanovska, President of SCPC expressed hope that there will be an epilogue to this initiative by the SCPC.
