Judicial Council Members Raise Suspicions over Cvetanka Peric’s Decision

At an urgent session on Monday, Judicial Council members raised suspicions over Cvetanka Peric’s decision to leave the race for Council member, citing health reasons, asking whether the health issues would prevent her from serving as Supreme Court Judge too.

Supreme Court President Besa Ademi herself is surprised by Peric’s decision. In her view, she should have notified her institution of the withdrawal.

Nonetheless, the Council suspects there have been potential pressures. Isamedin Limani is now the only candidate for Council member from the ranks of the Supreme Court. The Council is divided over whether he can be a candidate because members of ethnic communities already have representatives. The vote will be held on Wednesday.
