27 April case: Gjosevski’s lawyer Suspects ‘copy-paste’ Decisions were Made

In the decision rejecting Goran Gjosevski’s amnesty request in the 27 April case, the Criminal Court mistakenly wrote the name of Abdul Feta Alimi. The two persons, who were Parliament employees during the 27 April 2017 attacks, weren’t amnestied. However, Gjosevski’s lawyer, Ruzica Nikolovska, suspects it’s about so-called copy-paste decisions containing improper formulations that were adopted quickly without taking into account all circumstances. As she said, many such mistakes were detected in the decision. “Those mistakes make the decision itself unclear and difficult to understand,” she stated. The Court of Appeals is Gjosevski’s final chance to avoid prison. At a public session, he said the Criminal Court’s judges’ decision to reject his amnesty request had been a mistake. According to the Interior Ministry’s Rulebook, Gjosevski had the jurisdiction only to protect former PS Trajko Veljanoski’s safety, but not to intervene in the acts of violence.
