Detention Measure against Judge Georgiev Extended by Another 30 Days

The Criminal Court has accepted the Prosecutor’s Office’s proposal for the detention measure against Supreme Court Judge Nake Georgiev, suspected of accepting a reward for unlawful influence, to be extended by another 30 days.

Georgiev’s lawyer, Aleksandar Tumanovski, however, told Telma on Wednesday that he’d appealed the decision before the Court of Appeals.

According to him, milder measures to secure his client’s presence exist, especially considering that the Office itself doesn’t believe that there is a danger of him fleeing.

Tumanovski added that the decision to extend the measure had been made without the presentation of additional arguments and explanation for that.

Ixhet Memeti, the Deputy President of the Council of Public Prosecutors is a suspect in the case too.
