Macedonia Press Review – October 01, 2015

The new special prosecution will be the third largest in the country; Macedonia counts 236 homeless children; prosecutor who detained journalist Kezarovski is part of the new special prosecution.


Special prosecutor Katica Janeva has been pretty comfortable when choosing her deputies. With 14 deputy prosecutors, only the primary and the high prosecution in the capital Skopje will be bigger than the newly formed special prosecution tasked to investigate illegal surveillance cases, the daily says.
236 children in Macedonia live without a roof over their heads; the daily says conveying data from the Public Ombudsman’s office. The youngest of them is just few months old while the oldest is 18. Most of these children live in the capital, Skopje but there are many of them in the towns of Bitola, Kumanovo, Veles, Gostivar and Kicevo as well. These children can often be seen alone or with their parents while begging or scrapping car windshields on intersections.
Lile Stefanova, who led the controversial case against the investigative journalist Tomislav Kezarovski and whose decisions to prolong his pre-trial detention were protested by Macedonian journalists and international rights organizations, is part of the new team of the special prosecutor Katica Janeva, the daily says.
