Skopje, 19 August 2019 (MIA) – Special public prosecutor Katica Janeva has denied the request submitted by the defense lawyer in the Titanic 3 case to remove the SPO’s prosecutors Fatime Fetai and Gavril Bubevski from the case.
Defense lawyer Elenko Milanov first submitted the request to judge Marija Kletnichka, who then forwarded it the SPO as the relevant authority on the issue in line with existing legislation.

Milanov said his request was due to recent developments in the SPO, which included an ongoing conflict between Janeva and prosecutors Fetai and Bubevski.
