New Reactions to Dameva’s Dismissal as Judicial Council President

BESA, on its part, believes that the goal is to defend certain criminal structures. SDSM has a negative stand, adding, however, it is doing everything for citizens to feel European. Alternative described the dismissal as scandalous. The State Commission for Prevention of Corruption expressed concern, saying it expected a reaction from relevant state institutions. Concern was expressed also by the Justice Ministry, which requested the minutes and said the developments would greatly impact the further trust in the judiciary.
