Council of Public Prosecutors to appoint prosecutors, says Judicial Reform Council

Letting political parties, including the opposition, nominate chief prosecutors in any prosecutor's office would introduce the possibility of partisan influences over the prosecution system, the Judicial Reform Council said at a session Friday.

Skopje, 20 September 2019 (MIA) – Letting political parties, including the opposition, nominate chief prosecutors in any prosecutor’s office would introduce the possibility of partisan influences over the prosecution system, the Judicial Reform Council said at a session Friday.

“This is why the Judicial Reform Council recommends that no exceptions be made and that, in line with the constitutional principle, the Council of Public Prosecutors continue to appoint top prosecutors.” mr/
