Macedonia Press Review – September 21, 2015

Special prosecutor trusts the opposition’s word. Special prosecutor in search of a “dream team”. Macedonia discriminates against migrants with higher train ticket prices.


The new special prosecutor, Katica Janeva, trusts that the opposition Social Democrats will hand over all the remaining material from the massive illegal wiretapping scandal, the daily says. She believes that the promise the opposition made when signing the inter-party crisis deal this summer is a sufficient guarantee that there will not be any misuse of these materials.

The new special prosecutor in charge of investigating the illegal surveillance cases is in search of a “dream team”, the daily says. Experts told the daily that she will need a multidisciplinary team with expertise from various areas if she is to successfully tackle the task at hand.

Higher prices for train tickets for migrants who are crossing the country are a means of discrimination, Macedonia's Public Ombudsman says. He says that Macedonian Railways, a state owned company, must make ticket prices equal for everyone after the ticket price for migrants in the past few months hiked from five to 25 euro.
