Academy: Wednesday’s Session Saw Lot of Procedural Violations

The Academy for Judges and Public Prosecutors is still waiting for the decision from the State Commission for Prevention of Corruption (SCPC) officially accepting VMRO-DPMNE presidential candidate Gordana Siljanovska Davkova’s election HQ’s complaint over employment processes concerning future judges and public prosecutors in an election period.

Once it gets it, the Academy, it said on Thursday, will appeal it before the Administrative Court within 24 hours.

According to the Academy, at Wednesday’s session of the SCPC, there were a lot of procedural violations, including the deadline to respond given to the complaint being reduced by three hours, three members over which there were indications of conflict of interest not recusing themselves from action, and the SCPC not accepting the witnesses proposed by the Academy, for which it will seek court protection.
