Bill of Indictment Filed against Two in Public Room Case

The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office in Skopje has filed a bill of indictment for production and distribution of children pornography against the creator and administrator of the Public Room group on the Telegram platform. The relevant public prosecutor has submitted also a proposal to the Criminal Court in Skopje to extend the previously issued detention order against the two charged persons. According to the charge, the two people, from 19 December 2019 to 28 January 2020, on Telegram, were in charge of controlling the content of the textual and audio-visual materials shared by the group’s members. However, in a premediated manner, they allowed an audio-visual material showing obvious sexual intercourses with a child to be available.
